Who are these Canadian Drawing Masters?
Canada's drawing masters are artists for whom drawing
has been and continues to be the fountainhead
of all their creative work. Whether they are painters,
sculptors, engravers, printmakers, draughtsmen, illustrators
or designers, drawing remains at the root of their work.
Some are known locally, nationally, or even internationally.
Some are known as painters, others as instructors. Some
are masters in oils, or in watercolour, some in printers
ink, in pastel or in charcoal, some in carbon black pencil,
graphite, or silverpoint. All of them have made and will
continue to make a lasting contribution to the fine art
of drawing in Canada. Some are still with us today and
some are the great masters of yesteryear. All of these
men and women are artists of whom we are proud, and who
shall remain a constant encouragement to everyone who
undertakes this great adventure called art and drawing.
As the Drawing Society of Canada discovers them,
we will do our best to bring them to you in this gallery.
We believe there are many more to discover and that in
itself is worth the effort to make this educational feature
of the Drawing Society of Canada a valuable contribition
to our creative heritage.
