 2009, Untitled

 Oil on panel (10”x12”)



At the onset of the Second World War, Robert Hyndman joined the RCAF. His sketching and painting attracted the attention of The Canadian War Art Programme, and he was appointed as an official war artist. He created sixty-eight war paintings (mostly portraits), which now belong to the Canadian War museum.

  In 1947, Robert set up a studio in Ottawa. Critics were quick to acclaim his talents and his war paintings became the launching pad for a career that has included numerous exhibits and many years of teaching at The Banff School of Fine Arts and The Ottawa School of Art.

   Figure painting and drawing have always been a passion for Robert. He has always been fascinated with drawing from life. His portrait painting has taken him too many countries and has included a broad range of subjects from society matrons and government officials to businessmen and military personnel.

  Robert still lives and works in Old Chelsea, Quebec at the age of 94.

 Galerie Mauve is now preparing for its first solo show featuring the work of Robert Hyndman. This show will be a rare opportunity to acquire recent and past works from his private collection.  

This show will be of interest to collectors of fine Canadian art, and historians alike.

The show opens with a vernissage on Nov 5,  7 pm-10 pm. It will run until Nov 21.
