Monday hero: Alex Colville

The Canadian artist Alex Colville (1920-2013) is one of the painters whose work I have never seen for real. But when I come across images of his work, I linger.

His work is realistic, but his viewpoints make it very special: people, normally often the subject, are obscured in his paintings by cats, dogs and objects.

Almost like failed photographs.

But then utterly beautiful!
