Mont St. Genevieve

Hamilton Fraser, Donald
There are two seemingly unrelated themes in the work of Donald Hamilton Fraser: ballet dancers and abstracted landscapes. His landscapes show the influence of the School of Paris, and the solid blocks of colour reflect a particular admiration for the Russian-French painter Nicolas de Stael. Hamilton Fraser studied in Paris in 1953-54 on a French Government scholarship where he would have seen work by these artists. Ann Jones
