Michael Snow’s iconic Walking Woman series, which he developed in New York during the ebullient “Sixties,” is one the most significant of his exceptional multi-disciplinary career. From 1961 to 1967, the artist created more than 200 works representing the profiles of walking women in various sizes and mediums (drawing, painting, sculpture, print, film and photography, among others). This 1963 drawing, which has remained in the same collection since its acquisition from the Isaacs Gallery in 1967, fully captures the innovative spirit of this series.
The Walking Woman series is a testament to Snow’s unique and influential talent, and artworks from this series can be found in the collections of important institutions such as the National Gallery of Canada, the Museum of Modern Art and the Art Gallery of Ontario, to name a few.
