Title
Emily Coonan (1885-1971)
Abstract
Emily Coonan was born in Montreal's Pointe St. Charles district. Coonan began her art studies at the age of thirteen at Montreal’s Conseil des arts et manufactures. She studied at the Art Association of Montreal with William Brymner (1905-09), winning first prize in 1907. She exhibited at the Art Association of Montreal from 1907 to 1933, and in 1910 at the Royal Canadian Academy. Coonan was a member of the Beaver Hall Group, a group of thirty Montreal artists who exhibited together around 1921-22. Coonan painted throughout her life, but it seems she stopped participating in public art exhibitions after 1933. Coonan died in 1971 in the Cote St. Luc district of Montreal, where she had lived the last two years of her life with a niece.
