The painting is considered one of the first abstract contributions to Canadian Art and is heavily influenced by the Art Deco designs popular in the 1930s. Symphonic Forms belongs to a third and final group of abstracts painted by Bertram Brooker and is the finest in that small body of work. The original artwork is currently in the permanent collection of The Art Gallery of Hamilton.
