Bruce LeDain

An affirmed artist who could bring life to the pictures he painted with the love and enthusiasm of Canada. Born in 1928, Bruce Le Dain continues to live through his beautiful works of art. With his picturesque landscapes he gives off this air of experience that is rarely found. Taking his inspiration from the quiet countryside he gives of this feeling of calm and stillness. From an early age he participated in the International Childrens Art Exhibition in 1936, and by 1946 he enrolled in the Sir George Williams University to put his passion to the test. 3 years later his work was accepted at the Montreal Museum of fine arts Spring show from 1949 to 1953. From then on he has been labeled a legend amongst other greats as A.Y. Jackson and Tom Thompson (which being his major influences). His minimal detail perfectly purveys the lands in which he lived, with beautiful shore scapes to wet your palette. Bruce Le Dain was and still will be a major influence in the times to come.
