Historique

“Allan Edson (1846-1888) was a Canadian landscape painter from Québec. At the age of nine, his family settled in Stanbridge, where his father ran a hotel. John Carpenter Baker, a banker and a patron of the arts helped start the careers of Edson and another local painter Wyatt Eaton,(1849-1896) by helping to pay for art lessons and buying their works. In addition to his art studies, Edson received a standard commercial education.
In 1861, he moved to Montréal , where he worked as the bookkeeper for a frame maker and art dealer named Augustus Pell, who introduced him to local artists. Around 1863, he took lessons from Robert Scott Duncanson, an American painter who lived in Montréal during the Civil War. This was followed by two years in London for further studies. Upon his return, he became founding members of one of the earliest Canadian societies of artists and participate in their first exhibition in 1868. He was also one of the original members of the Ontario Society of Artists, founded in 1872, and the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts, established in 1880 with Royal patronage. At one of their first exhibitions, some of his works were purchased by Princess Louise for herself and her mother, Queen Victoria.
He exhibited regularly throughout Canada. He also presented his works at the Royal Academy of Arts in London, the Paris Salon and two world’s fairs; the Centennial Exposition in Philadelphia and Exposition Universelle in Antwerp.
In the early 1880s, he went to live in France, spending most of his time in Cernay-la-Ville, where he studied with Léon Germain Pelouse. From 1886 6o 1867, he was in London, and then returned to Canada, settling in Sutton, Québec. The following year, he died of complication from pneumonia, which he caught while on the expedition to paint winter scenes.”
