Hugh Mackenzie, Nude Lady Wearing a Mask, 1970
Nude Lady Wearing a Mask
Artist RegionOntario
DescriptionThis piece exemplifies Mackenzie’s early, high realist art style, a naturalistic, monochrome rendering of a nude, masked woman that stands in sharp contrast with his later (and better-known) abstract, vividly coloured works. The composition of the piece, a circular image in the centre of a field of white, gives the impression of a vignette, lending a greater sense of intimacy to the nude representation.
