Plaque Text

One of Canada's outstanding artists, Milne was born on a farm near Burgoyne, Saugeen Township, and raised in Paisley. Though largely self-taught, he studied briefly in New York at the Art Student's League, and in 1913 exhibited some of his paintings at the Armory Show which introduced contemporary European art to North America. Milne served as an official Canadian war artist during the first World War. Working mainly in water-colours, he developed a highly personal impressionistic style of painting. Among his better known works are: "Water Lilies, Temagami"; "Painting Places"; "Snow in Bethlehem"; "Rites of Autumn"; and "White Poppy". His paintings are found in many of the public galleries in Canada.
