This intricate ink composition was completed in a particularly significant year for the painter, as well as for art in Quebec. 1948 was the year when the manifesto Refus Global was published with sixteen signatories, including Jean-Paul Mousseau. A student of Paul-Émile Borduas, the artist contributed five original drawings for the first Automatiste book published in Quebec in 1946, which was inspired by Surrealism. “Sans titre” is a fine and delicate work that exemplifies the early days of abstraction in Quebec, recalling the influences of automatic writing and drawing from the unconscious.
