Huntley Brown, (R.C.A., A.O.C.A.) born 1932 in Lethbridge, Alberta graduated from the Ontario College of Art & Design in 1955. By 1978 he was inducted into the Royal Canadian Academy.
His artistic journey began when he was nine years old. A.Y. Jackson, visiting his brother next door to the Browns, took Huntley and his father, who was also interested in painting, on sketching trips. These early experiences led to his commitment to a career in art. He studied at the Ontario College of Art in Toronto and graduated in 1955. By 1958 he was a freelance cartoonist and illustrator for The Toronto Star. He also did illustrations for Maclean's, The Globe and Mail, Imperial Oil Review and a number of American-owned publications including Reader's Digest.
In the "Historic Headlines" volume, Brown illustrated the story of the famous 1960s FLQ mailbox bombing. In the three panel opening spread, he employed a very upbeat colour palette - but the imagery is absolutely chilling - A powerful juxtaposition that creates a jarring effect on the viewer.
Brown chose to use sequential storytelling, giving us a "before-during-and-after" view of that terrible moment in Canada's history. It's not what one typically expects from a story illustration, but perhaps Brown was in a sequential art frame of mind at the time...
He was recipient of numerous illustration and design awards. After his induction into the R.C.A. in 1978 he was commissioned by Canada Post, to create commemorative stamps to honour the achievements of some of our Canadian musicians and composers.
He designed in 1982, for the Royal Canadian Mint, the commemorative silver dollar to mark the centennial of Regina featuring a bison skull and the Saskatchewan legislative buildings.
Maligne Lake is a lake in Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada. It is famed for the colour of its water, the surrounding peaks, the three glaciers visible from the lake and Spirit Island, one of the most photographed locations in the world.
This watercolor gives us the cold chill we can expect from a frozen lake under the massive heights of the Rocky Mountains. Everything is clearly presented with no embellishments. The land masses are accurate and the mountain is breathtaking. Nothing extra is needed to describe this powerful country view.
