About artist/note:

Born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, in 1915 Arthur Horsfall studied art at the Winnipeg School of Art, under L.L. Fitzgerald and Joe Plaskett. He also studied under Nicola Bjelajac at The Forum Art Institute in Winnipeg, attended workshops with Ken Lochhead at St. Andrews-by-the-Sea, and with Roy Kiyooka at the Banff School of Fine Arts. Horsfall worked for thirty years as a commercial artist in Winnipeg, but in 1967, devoted himself full-time to painting. He was the recipient numerous awards, including the Seagram Award in 1965, the Price Fine Arts Award in 1966, and the Hudson’s Bay Company Centennial Award in 1974. Horsfall also taught art at the Forum Art Institute and the University of Manitoba Extension Department. Invited into the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts, Horsfall was also a founding member of the Art Directors’ Club of Winnipeg, and a member of the 1970‘s Subway Group of Artists, which later became known as the Subway Galleries
