Henry Wanton
Jones


Henry Wanton Jones est né en 1925 à Waterloo, Québec. Il est versé en divers média, de la bijouterie et le collage à la sculpture et, naturellement, la peinture. Arthur Lismer, membre reconnue du Groupe des Sept, était son instructeur. Ses tableaux parlent avec une langue visuelle méticuleusement developé et unique à lui. Selon John Ivor Smith, les tableaux de Jones nous donnent l’accès à un rêve occupé par les équestres, les femmes nues et leurs étalons. C’est un rêve rempli de tendresse, d’humour, d’érotisme et de variations.

Ses œuvres se retrouvent dans nombreuses collections privées et muséales telles que celle du Musée du Québec, la collection canadienne de la Galerie McMichael, la Galerie d’Art de Winnipeg, la Galerie Robert McLaughlin, la Galerie d’Art du Centre de la Conféderation et le Ministre des Affaires Externes.



Henry Wanton Jones was born in 1925 in Waterloo, Quebec. He has worked in such diverse media as jewelry, collage, sculpture, and of course painting, which he studied with none other than Arthur Lismer.Over the years, Jones’ work has evolved into well-defined, colourful and distinctive still-lifes and equestrian nudes. John Ivor Smith describes these latter paintings as “female nudes and their stallions, tender and lightheartedly erotic in a thousand luscious, ingenious variations.”

As well as being part of numerous private collections, Jones’ paintings are housed in the prestigious collections of the Musée du Québec, the McMichael Canadian Collection, the Winnipeg Art Gallery, the Robert McLaughlin Gallery, the Confederation Center Art Gallery and the Ministry of External Affairs.
