Historical Context:
"Edwin Holgate was a draftsman, portraitist, landscape and figure painter, printmaker, book illustrator, muralist, war artist, and educator. As a central figure in the development of modern art in Canada, Holgate forged his own path balancing traditional and modern stylistic approaches. He also established a distinctive method of portraying the human figure in the landscape and was also instrumental in the revival of woodblock printing." -National Gallery of Canada.
