William Perehudoff

William Perehudoff (b. 1918) has a career spanning over 50 years, and he is now considered one of Canada’s most distinguished painters, and a leading light of Post-painterly Abstraction. His introduction to the paintings of Morris Louis and Kenneth Noland came courtesy of Clement Greenberg at Emma Lake Workshop in 1962. Perehudoff’s work also shows the influence of that other great Canadian abstract painter, Jack Bush, (who returned the compliment) before going on to establish an original style of “Colour Chording” in the late Seventies and Eighties. He has shown widely in Canada and the USA, but prior to an exhibition at Canada House in London in 2006, he last showed in this country in 1979 at Theo Waddington’s London gallery. His work is in numerous public and private collections.
