TONY FOMISON, CA 1968
Painted in oils on glass 1/2 gallon jar in the late 1960's while Tony Fomison was living in a house in Riccarton Road with Philip Clairmont and other bohemian artists.
Financial necessity led Fomison to use found objects to support or frame his paintings, such as window sashes, chair backs or cupboard doors.
His fascination with the works of European master painters such as Domenico Ghirlandaio (1449 –1494) is clearly evident in this work.
Signed on the shoulder and on the base.
