When Danny first ventures into Room 237, a painting can be seen reflected in a mirrored door just inside the room. The painting is titled “Boy, Dog And St. John River” (1958) by Canadian artist Alex Colville.

Colville’s paintings are often described as having a subtly unsettling quality, which is perhaps why Kubrick chose to feature them in The Shining.

Colville died in 2013 at the age of 92. After his passing, his son, Graham, remarked:

“I must say, I (felt) slight surprise when I saw Stanley Kubrick’s film The Shining and I suddenly realized my father’s paintings were in the background in numerous scenes. They were implanted in that film as almost subliminal messages.“

Two other Colville paintings can be seen at the beginning of the film hanging in the family’s Boulder apartment, and yet another can be seen at the Overlook, near the end of the film.

It’s a century since it all started, but this bar-fight still makes as much sense as any amount of thick books.
