Joseph Purcell Joseph Purcell, born in Halifax, 1927 - 2017,
received his art training at the Nova Scotia College of Art. Early in his
career he developed a style of his own with dramatic use of light and
composition. At the age of 18 he completed three 18 foot murals for Canadian
National hotels and at 23 won the O’Keefe Art Award, a national competition. In
the same year he was chosen to interpret Halifax for the Seagrams Collection,
“Cities of Canada,” which toured major capital cities of the world. In more
recent years, Joseph completed a major collection of on-the-spot paintings of
gold mines of Nova Scotia, entitled the Seabright Collection, which now hangs
at the Museum of Industry in Stellarton, NS. Joseph was privileged to go out on
the Grand Banks of Newfoundland with the fishermen of Lunenburg, painting them
at work in the years when many schooners plied out of that port. He is still
captivated by the sea, ships and the spirit that made the Atlantic fisheries
flourish. In his landscapes and seascapes Joseph devoted his full effort to an
art that reflects the Atlantic scene. Joseph Purcell’s work has hung in major
galleries of Canada, the United States and England. His murals adorn numerous
public buildings, historic churches and naval establishments in Canada. Joseph
and his wife Tela, an artist also, resided in Lunenburg, NS.
