"Dialogue with a Donkey"


This painting was purchased directly from the artist in 2000 by renowned Canadian art curator, author and Emily Carr biographer, Doris Shadbolt, wife of Jack Shadbolt, one of Canada's foremost painters. The painting was loaned for incorporation in Hodnett's major solo exhibition in Vancouver, Canada in November 2002. The photo below was taken at the Shadbolt residence on Capital Hill in Burnaby by poet Tom McGauley at the time of purchase.

Doris Shadbolt passed away while on vacation in Mexico in December 2003. The painting was bequeathed to her long-time friend and art collector Ronald MacDonald.  The painting now hangs in the MacDonald Collection in Toronto.
