I wrote a piece in The Toronto Star today about a collection of 1930’s paintings by Vince de Vita that Richard Brightling discovered nailed to the rafters of his Toronto attic.

Here are two of the paintings from the Vince de Vita Heritage series.

I think you’ll find it an interesting read.

The paintings are available for sale from Sotheby’s in Toronto. For more on Richard, who is also an artist, take a look at this post I wrote earlier this year  –http://canadianoriginals.net/2011/01/02/recycled-wood-becomes-abstract-art/.
