Vancouver Location

Tuesday, September 17, 2013

Our condolences go out to the family of famed Canadian artist Alex Colville. Colville passed away in his home in Wolfville, Nova Scotia at 92 years old.

Celebrated Canadian artist Alex Colville was born in Toronto in 1921 and raised in Nova Scotia. Colville was one of three Canadian war artists sent to Germany to paint images of concentration camps in the 1930s. He taught art at Mount Allison University and exhibited widely in the mid 1950s until his recent death. A multi-faceted artist who worked arduously on preliminary sketches and prints for his drawings and paintings, Colville remains one of Canada's most reputed artists.

Colville's spirit will continue on to live in the markings of his detailed studies, sketches, drawings, prints and paintings.
