Regina Seiden (1897-1991) studied under Canadian artists William Brymner, Edmond Dyonnnet and Maurice Cullen at the Art Association of Montreal. Brymner became an important influence for Seiden, and encouraged her to continue her studies in Paris. Upon returning to Montreal in 1922, Seiden painted alongside the Beaver Hall Group and exhibited with them in 1921 and 1922. Seiden’s work was also included in the 1924 British Empire Exhibition at Wembley as well as the 1927 Jeu de Paume exhibition in Paris.
Like many Canadian women artists at this time, in particular the Montrealers, Seiden specialized in the figure, especially portraits of women.
