In 1940, David Milne and Kathleen Pavey moved from Toronto to Uxbridge, a tranquil small town – close (but not too close!) to Toronto. Milne’s years at Uxbridge from 1940 to 1946 were domestically content and artistically productive, and his son David Jr. was born in 1941. During this time Milne worked on “subject paintings,” such as religious-inspired imagery like the Ascension series, concurrent with his landscapes and still lifes. From 1942 to 1944, he produced a group of flower subjects, such as this delightful work. Milne took a more detailed approach to his subject here, and the zinnias are wedged into the vase in such profusion that they are falling over and out, scattering over the tabletop. Due to having a child in the household, Milne included items previously not seen in his still lifes: toys, blocks and stuffed animals, such as the monkey in this vivacious and colourful oil.
