(1920) Order of Canada

Though born in Toronto (1920), Alex Colville considers himself a Maritimer having moved to Nova Scotia at a young age. He studied art at Mount Allison University, N.B. and on graduating in 1942 joined the Canadian Army and served in Europe as a member of the War Art program. He taught art and art history at Mount Allison University from 1946 to 1963 before devoting himself full-time to his painting and print-making. Colville's work has been exhibited in many parts of the world - North America, Europe, and the Far East - and has been eagerly sought for museum, corporate, and private collections.
