  • Description
Nicholas Hornyansky ARCA, OSA, CPE (Canadian, 1896-1965) was a visual original. His works cannot be mistaken for any other; his earthen oranges and greens and designs of historic sites and architecture are unmatched anywhere in North America.

He was born in Budapest in 1896. He worked as a colour mixer in his father’s printing office while still a boy. Hornyansky studied art at the Academy of Fine Arts in Budapest and became an accomplished portrait painter, exhibiting in Antwerp and Brussels. He took up etching and landscape painting and returned to Paris to study aquatint printmaking before emigrating to Canada in 1929.

He is best known for his colourful aquatint etchings of the rural scenery, buildings and streetscapes of Ontario, Quebec and the Maritimes.

Hornyansky developed his own unique single-pull positive-approach aquatint process and also worked in watercolour, gouache and ink.

He taught printmaking at the OCA (Ontario College of Art) and was president of the CPE. He was a member of many American art associations including the American Color Print Society in Philadelphia, and was also a Life Fellow of the International institute of Arts and Letters.

This is an original etching/aquatint of 'Old St. Paul's, Toronto' cathedral, situated between Church St. and Sherbourne, south side of Bloor Street East. This section built in 1858 and called the "perfect Gothic gem" is the second addition to the original structure.

Hornansky's fine, miniscule handwriting is evident under the aquatint. This is not a signed, limited edition but a single piece pulled from his original work, signed and titled in pencil. It was listed for $250.00 as a first offering.

The Aquatint is in excellent condition. The protective covering has been abused, noting the footprints on the backside of the folio.
