Louise Jamet was a Montreal artist and Professor in the Fine Arts Department of Bishop's University in the late 20th century. She worked with sewing and embroidery, which, although using similar materials of thread and fabric, are different in purpose. The geometric patterns are inspired from folk art and kept as simple as possible so as not to draw the attention away for the process. Her work is a reflection on the original purpose and the process of sewing and embroidery.

  • 1882-1974

Born in 1882 in Montréal Quebec, A.Y. Jackson was a founding member of the Group of Seven and he was intrinsic to the development of the Canadian art aesthetic.

Immediately following his education in North America, Jackson traveled to Paris to study under Jean Paul Laurens (1838-1921) at the Académie Julian where he was heavily influenced by Impressionism. Subsequent to his studies, he traveled and painted England, France and Italy, and returned to Québec in 1914.
With their focus on capturing the Canadian landscape, the paintings that Jackson produced upon his return attracted the attention of fellow artist J.E. H. MacDonald (1873-1932) and Lawren Harris (1885-1970). They eventually convinced Jackson to move to Toronto, where he shared a studio with Tom Thomson (1877-1917) and become involved in all major group trips to Algonquin Park, Georgian Bay, Algoma and the North Shore.
Jackson exhibited with the Group of Seven throughout the 1920s. He also made regular sketching trips to Québec in the spring, travelled to regions such as the Canadian Artic in the summer and returned to the studio in Toronto to paint his canvases.
With a career that remained active into his eighties, Jackson exhibited with the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts from 1904- 1957 and with the Art Association of Montreal from 1903 to 1946. He died in Kleinberg, Ontario in 1974.

Rosa, Salvator (1615-1673)

  • 1993_049
  • Person
  • 1615-1673

Rosa was an Italian painter of the Baroque period, as well as a print-maker, poet and author of satires. He was active in Naples, Rome and Florence, and best known for his unconventional and romantic landscapes, as well as his rebellious nature. Rosa was indisputably a leader in that tendency towards the romantic and picturesque, called a proto-romantic. His landscapes avoided the idyllic and pastoral calm in the landscapes of Claude Lorrain (1600 – 1682) and Paul Bril (1554 – 1626), and created brooding, melancholic fantasies, awash in ruins and brigands. As a writer, Rosa was equally romantic in his descriptions and rebellious in his attitude towards convention.
Rosa began his training in Naples, notably with his future brother-in-law, Francesco Francanzano (1612 – 1657), who trained under the influential Spanish painter, Jusepe de Ribera (1591 – 1652), who Rosa may have trained with as well. It is also said that Rosa may have trained with the Naples painter, Aniello Falcone (1600 – 1665), who was also an apprentice to Ribera. After a brief trip to Rome, he returned to Naples and began painting his wildly romantic landscapes, eventually returning to Rome after 1638 painting one of his only altarpieces, Incredulity of Thomas.
