Lionel LeMoine FitzGerald’s subject matter remained consistent through his career, focusing on landscape and still life, but he demonstrated great inventiveness in using a wide variety of media and techniques. FitzGerald’s key works have been selected to trace his stylistic development from realism to abstraction. His artistic goal, as stated in his 1954 CBC Radio interview, was “to put into visible form, some inner urge, first for the artist himself and eventually to convey his reactions to his environment, to others, in colour and form, his language.”
