Heffel Auction House Biography and Notes

John Kasyn is known for his depictions of Toronto urban neighbourhoods that often focus on the backyards of row houses. In Homewood Hall, Kasyn depicts an iconic heritage house located in Thornhill, Ontario, that served as a private residence and office for doctors in the area in the late 1920s and through much of the remaining century. The house was built in 1825, and stands in testament to the architectural building aesthetic of this early period. The grey and taupe tones of the house and fence are contrasted by the blue and mauve hues in the sky, which are subtly reflected in the snow. The pale curtains, opened ever so slightly, draw the viewer into the picture and evoke a sense of time and place. Although no inhabitants are visible, their presence is implied, and the house has a living aura. Homewood Hall, crystallized in time and cloaked by winter, is a beautiful, delicately tonal composition with a haunting presence.
