Alex von Svoboda
was born in Austria in 1929 and studied art in Paris, Rome and Vienna.
After WWII Alex emigrated to Canada and resumed his work. Between 1957
and 1958 Alex entered into a partnership with artist York Wilson who had
received an assignment to produce five 20' by 5' mosaic panels to illustrate
the theme 'Communications' for Bell Canada. The 'Communications' mosaics
incorporated symbols similar to the Lascaux cave drawings.
During the following
year in 1959 Alex created the masterpiece above.
The painting consists
of 5 panels, each of which is 42" x 79". Allowing for a 1.5" gap between
each panel, the complete work is 18 feet wide, and 6.5 feet high.
