A stay in France in 1952 where he made contact with Jean-Paul Riopelle would have a decisive effect on the evolution of Jean McEwen's painting. This whole European period should be underlined with a bright line because it is rich in decisive experiences: meetings with painters who will mark its trajectory, among others Sam Francis, knowledge of the work of Jackson Pollock, frequentation of major museums, affirmation of his style. The young pharmacy graduate is now turning to a resolutely non-figurative expression.
