Edwin Matthews (1919 - 2003) born in Quebec, began his career working for four years as an apprentice to the late A.J. Casson of the famous “Group of Seven” Canadian painters.
A prolific painter in watercolours, acrylics and oils, Edwin’s paintings have a ‘painted quality’ unlike super realism painters whose paintings have photographic details. These superb paintings sparkle with his portrayal of the beauty and contrasts of the Ontario landscape which was his favourite subject.
He loved painting the ‘rugged rocks’ of Newfoundland and the great scenery of the Gaspe as well as the North Shore of Lake Superior where he completed hundreds of pencil sketches waiting to become full paintings.
His paintings hang in such corporations as The Ford Motor Company, E.B. Eddy Company, Lake Ontario Steel, General Foods, Canadian General Electric, Heritage Life, The Mennen Company, Xerox, Stevenson-Kellogg, as well as in 16 Canadian Consulates in foreign countries.
The prestigious ‘Buckhorn Wildlife Festival’ was originated by Edwin and his wife Barbara and it's the 'Gallery on the Lake' at Buckhorn where there's a permanent exhibition of his work.
A listed Canadian artist, he is represented by the Art Gallery of Canada in Ottawa and was noted as a teacher in the community as well as for his landscapes.
'Misty Bay' is in northern British Columbia just south of the Yukon and Alaskan borders.
Museum quality frame, matting and lithograph are in good condition, ready to hang.
