Horace Watson Wickenden, 1901 – 1955
Canadian artist Horace Watson Wickenden immigrated to Canada in 1921, settling in Saskatoon the following year. He studied art over several decades under Augustus Kenderdine, H. G. Glyde, and Eli Bornstein. He was also associated with many of the Saskatoon watercolour painters. Like his contemporaries Ernest Lindner, Reta Cowley, and Dorothy Knowles, Horace was concerned with and inspired by the regional Saskatchewan landscape, a refreshing departure from the Ontario and Quebec centred Canadian art scene.
