Noteworthy Artists That Aren’t Regularly Available To Our Gallery

Down To Earth Art Gallery has or have had original paintings by a truly impressive list of artists. From a number of Group of Seven members, to Maud Lewis, Joe Norris, and Indigenous artists like Norval Morrisseau, Daphne Odjig and Benjamin Chee Chee. This list is outside of the artists that we exhibited regularly or periodically over our 26 years. Sometimes it has only been one painting by a particular artist, other times we have been fortunate enough to have multiple pieces by the same artist. All are very collectible, most come to us from people downsizing their lives, or clients simply changing up their private collections. We always require good provenance with any artwork so our customers can be confident with their purchases. Down To Earth Art Gallery guarantees the authenticity of every painting that we sell.

The list is always changing on our Noteworthy section of our website, so check it out often. If you’re looking for a particular artist’s work let us know, we keep a list of art that our clients are interested in. Paintings often don’t make it to our website, they are spoken for as we receive them.

Born in Ontario, Frederick Arthur Verner enrolled at London's Hatherley’s Academy in 1856. He served in the British military, first in 1858 in the Yorkshire militia and then in the British Legion in 1860. Two years later, Verner returned to Canada and worked as a photograph colourist but spent the majority of his time sketching the wilderness and Indian tribal communities in his area. He co-founded the Ontario Society of Artists in 1872 and exhibited regularly with the group until he moved to England in 1880.

By 1874, Frederick Arthur Verner (1836-1928) had hit his stride professionally. Joan Murray writes: "He could devote himself full time to painting and by the spring of 1875 had produced a surprising amount of new work. Among his paintings were his first subjects of evening or night..." This watercolour dates to 1875, and falls within a period of outstanding accomplishment for Verner. Between 1873 and 1876, Verner brought to his painting a greater truthfulness, attention to detail, drama and confidence than he had previously demonstrated. In today's vernacular, Verner was in "the zone". This painting, like so many other great works from this period, displays Verner's "mystical use of distance".
