Abstract (English)

Catalogue to accompany Hartland-Rowe’s exhibition based on the theme: “What are days for?” Quinton’s analysis of the iconography used in the artist’s narrative paintings highlights the biblical, literary and mythological sources of the imagery. The author also compares the human figures, animals and plant forms represented to the backgrounds of medieval woven tapestries. Mandel provides detailed descriptions of various elements of the exhibition, and suggests that Hartland-Rowe’s paintings are a form of storytelling. Figurative, narrative and symbolic aspects of the works are considered in relation to medieval, renaissance and modernist painting. Includes a brief artist’s statement. List of works. Biographical notes. 26 bibl. ref.
