Artist: Alex Simeon Janvier
Medium: gouache on paper
Dimensions: 16.25 x 14 in. (41.3 x 35.6 cm)

Provenance: Former collection of Herbert Malcolm (Herb) Lott & Grace Lott (Edmonton AB), and by descent to the family. Alex Janvier resided with the Lotts periodically during the 1950s and 1960s. The Lotts encouraged the artist in his pursuit of an art education, which Janvier completed (1956-1960) at the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology and Art (now Alberta University of the Arts). The Lotts acquired this piece directly from the artist, who began exhibiting commercially shortly after graduation. This work shortly predates Janvier’s first solo gallery exhibition in 1964.
