Born in 1882, in rural Ontario, David Milne is renowned as Canada's most admired modernist painter

Working independently from the Group of Seven, Milne was trained at the Art Students League in New York, his style was heavily informed by the Impressionist works of Monet and Matisse’s Fauvism.

Joining the Canadian Army in 1917, Milne trained and travelled throughout Canada and Europe, becoming a war painter in the First World War. 

Most at home in rural settings, Milne settled in the Ontario countryside, surrounded by the quiet nature that was frequently depicted in his work. Milne’s characteristic vivid colors, contrasted with heavy black outlines and negative space as well as his expressive brushstrokes have contributed to his fame.

“Painting Place” epitomizes Milne’s characteristic style and subject matter. In a self-referential manner, this landscape is foregrounded by a paint brushes and supplies, nodding to the painterly effect of the work.

Today "Painting Place" is one of the most iconic and collected 20th century Canadian prints.
