Terry Fenton's article on (Canadian Prairie Watercolour Landscapes)on sharecom.ca, provides a couple of interesting observations on FitzGerald's style of painting.
Before pointing this out, I should mention that the artist was the last member to join the group, before it disbanded in 1933. Terry Fenton's article, writes:
FitzGerald was a remarkable artist, attempting in his own way to reconcile modernism with truth to nature. His style is delicate and rather pointillist, combining something of the softness of some Victorian watercolours with the precision and subtlety of Neo-Impressionists like Seurat.
Paul Duval, in his A Vision of Canada, the McMichael Canadian Collection, writes that Lemoine did most of his pointilistic paintings during his summer vacations (He was a teacher at the Winnipeg School of Art)when he had lots of time to paint. And, anyone familiar with pointilism knows that it is the ultimate style for micromanagers. Speaking personally, the art of composing a work from thousands of dots of paints would be next to sheer madness.
