    Art Brokerage: Mary Pratt Canadian Artist: b. 1935-2018. Mary Frances Pratt, CC, RCA (née West; March 15, 1935-August 14, 2018) was a Canadian painter specializing in still life realist paintings. While her early works focus on domestic scenes, some of her later work take on a darker, more disturbing tone and have people as their subject matter. The focus of her work was the ordinary household things one finds around the house: jars of jelly, apples, aluminum foil, brown paper bags. The style was bold and flamboyant, rendering their subject vivid and realistic. Because of this transformation of the mundane into something aesthetic, "she may have had more influence on shaping the way we see things than any Canadian painter since the Group of Seven". In a 2013 Globe and Mail article, responding to critics of her work as too "commercial", she said, "People will find out that in each one of the paintings there is something that ought to disturb them, something upsetting. That is why I painted them." Listings wanted.
