Jean Park Cameron was born 1905 in Paisley, Ontario, a short drive from Owen Sound and Lake Huron and perhaps an hour's drive from where I live. Her education in art consisted of a two-year course at the Ontario College of Art in Toronto, and studies at Franz Johnston's Summer School of Painting, near Midland, Ontario.
By 1939, she had exhibited in the Ontario Society of Artists, the Royal Canadian Academy, the National Gallery of Canada, the Western Ontario Gallery (in London, Ontario), and in both the United Society of Artists of Great Britain and the Society of Women Artists (both of London, England). She was a member of these latter two societies.
Her work features landscapes, and chiefly flowers in still life. Excellent composition and exceptionally good, clean, beautiful colours characterize her paintings.
A listed Canadian artist, her works are the property of the National Gallery of Canada and the Ontario Art Gallery in Toronto and many private collections in Canada and the United States.
At the turn of the 1900's, the Lac Beauvert, Jasper territory was originally used as a big game hunting lodge/camp that boasted 3 month excursions into the mountains towards Jasper and back again, up until the 1940's when the Armed Forces took over the area as training camps for the war.
As a labour of love, painted in 1945, for what eventually became a World Heritage Site, Jean started to paint these wonderful landscapes and as it happens, is where she chose to live, get married and start a family. She was painting home.
The painting is in excellent shape but for the scrubbing someone started over one of the mountains tops. I believe it could be restored and could recommend a gallery that restores high end paintings. The vintage frame has some light marks, easily masked.
