Additional Information

Ivan Eyre is an artist known primarily for his landscapes and abstract figures. He studied art at the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg, where he later taught painting and drawing for more than three decades.

Early in his life, from 1958-59, he studied at the University of North Dakota in the masters degree program. The painting featured here dates from this period. It reflects American abstract expressionist styles that were prevalent at the time, suggesting perhaps the influences of painters Mark Rothko and Arshile Gorky.
