        JOHN LITTLE, R.C.AHIVER - RUE HENRI JULIENoil on canvassigned; also signed, titled and dated ‘77 on the stretcher 24 ins x 30 ins; 61 cms x 76.2 cms Provenance:Continental Galleries Inc., Montreal Private Collection, TimminsThere is little use trying to resist the paintings of John Little (b. 1928) and certainly there must be few who have experienced Montreal who do not succumb to the degree to which the painter evokes the very heart of the place.The precise perspectival lines and attentive handling of architectural elements evidence Little’s academic training and time spent working at his father’s architecture firm. His favourite subjects are the winter scenes of working class neighbourhoods, which he records with a practiced familiarity.While there isn’t a season that Little hasn’t mastered, in some way the joys of winter are something quite particular to the Montrealais, making Hiver - Rue Henri Julien (the street is named after the well-known Montreal painter) quite special.Estimate: $15,000–20,000

        JOHN GEOFFREY CARUTHERS LITTLE, R.C.ARUE FABRIQUE, QUEBECoil on masonitesigned 17.75 ins x 24 ins; 45.7 cms x 61 cms Provenance:Private Collection, OntarioLiterature:Colin S. MacDonald, A Dictionary of Canadian Artists, 3rd edition, Canadian Paperbacks, Ottawa, 1975, pages 871-872.Note:Following two years of study at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, John Little left his native home to continue his artistic pursuits in New York City. In 1949, Little worked as an assistant on the popular aviation adventure comic strip Bruce Gentry (which ran in newspapers from 1945-1951) before returning to Montreal in 1951 to begin working as a draughtsman in his father’s architectural firm (Luke & Little).It is easy to trace to the influence of the streets of New York, the playful appearance of comic strips and the precision of a draughtsman, in the works that Little would go on to produce following his 1953 decision to turn exclusively to painting. Rue Fabrique, Quebec is an exceptional example of Little’s work from this period.Côte de la Fabrique lies in the heart of Quebec City’s bustling commercial district. Little’s panoramic vantage point rests at the spot where the street intersects with the Rue Saint-Jean. A light rain shower has cast the road with a glistening dampness, which slickens the pavement and heightens the vivid hues Little employs. Patrons of the bistros and shops which line the streets, spill out into the scene, going about their business in a cacophony of activity and colour. Little’s spectacle is not only a pleasure to admire visually, but it also creates an easily imaginable soundscape. A businessman barters with a horse-drawn cab for hire; a merchant on a bicycle cart whistles at the swoosh of a woman’s tangerine-coloured skirt; children attentively listen to the instructions of their nanny; two nuns deliberate on the state of modernity; men settle wagers in front of the pub; impatient drivers in cars and delivery trucks honk their horns; streetcars trundle noisily down the tracks – bells ringing, steel squealing.

With thick and brisk brushstrokes, the painter perfectly renders the busy, slushy, and slippery streets of the city. His subdued colour palette creates an atmosphere where the air is so heavy and the sky so low, that foreground and background appear as if leaning on one another.

He set about documenting its changing face. As Dorothy Pfeiffer explains, though, it goes beyond this. "Those bemoaning the seemingly ruthless demolition of hundreds of Montreal's gracious old-world homes and other buildings, the disappearance in the name of progress of various little private nooks and parks, and the often callous disposal of dignified stone pillars and amusing cornices will gain nostalgic pleasure from John Little's show, for he has dedicated his paintings to the preservation of such items for posterity. Yet so spirited and relaxed is his painting technique, that his work can in no manner today be labelled as merely documentary. He paints city streets ankle-deep in slush, where his not-quite-ripe olivegreen mixture carpets pavements with a mélange resembling Quebec limestone. He peoples his old streets and secluded sylvan sites with groups of today's spirited adults and children . . . Three important qualities it certainly contains: assurance, individuality and artistic honesty."

Rather than add the punches of colour found in many of his urban subjects, the muted tones emphasize the tranquility of the spot, a normally bustling work area, and seem almost to mirror the weather and mood.
