“Passion and Intrigue” Carol Bishop-Gwyn on her new book “Art and Rivalry”

February 1 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm EST

Virtual Event
$12.00 – $20

For Ballet and Art Lovers a new Series
The unauthorized biography of Canada’s most famous artist couple and the rivalry that drove them –
The Marriage of Mary and Christopher Pratt

“She painted as if with pure light, radiant colours making quotidian kitchen scenes come alive with sublimated drama. He painted like clockwork, each stroke precise and measured with exquisite care, leaving no angle unchecked and no subtlety of tone unattended. Some would say Mary Pratt was fire and Christopher, ice. And yet Newfoundland’s Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera (or Jackson Pollack and Lee Krasner…) presented their marriage as a portrait of harmony and balance. But balance off the canvas rarely makes great art, and the Pratts’ art was spectacular.”
