  • More Info



Peter Etril Snyder (1944 - ) born in Waterloo, Ontario began painting when he was 12 years old, studied under Matthew Kousal among other teachers and began a life-long series of paintings of the Mennonites from 1969 onwards.

While the subject matter of his paintings has been an important part of his success, and the subject of Mennonite life has brought him international fame, Snyder himself is primarily concerned with aesthetics.

He describes his goal in painting as making "something that is delicious to my eye." Aesthetics are more important to him than subject, medium or anything else.

This superb image of flowering hollyhocks by a fence is a wonderful departure from the well known fields and families he is known for.

"Flower growing is one of the few artistic pursuits allowed women in the more traditional Mennonite groups. A trip down a lane near Hawkesville would reward the traveller with this sight". - Peter Etril Snyder
