Biographical history

Stanley Lewis, a Jewish Canadian sculptor, photographer and internationally renowned art teacher, was born in Montréal in 1930. He trained at the School of Art and Design at the Montréal Museum of Fine Arts under such well-known Canadian artists as Arthur Lismer and Jacques de Tonnancour. He graduated first in his class with Honours diploma in graphics, design and sculpture. Lewis is a Canadian pioneer in colour stone-cut prints, using a technique of printmaking in which he produces separate stone-cuts for each colour of the print and uses transparent inks to achieve subtle colour relationships. His works are held in many public collections such as the Montréal Museum of Fine Arts, the Museum of Québec, the National Gallery of Canada as well as in numerous private collections. Since the 1950s, Lewis' sculptures and lithographic works have been displayed in the galleries and museum around the world. Lewis died in 2006 at the Montréal Jewish General Hospital.
