Title
1920 : création du Groupe de Beaver Hall : des femmes font jazzer la couleur
Abstract
The Beaver Hall Group was an assemblage of mostly middle-class Anglophone Montreal painters in the early 1920s, half of whom were female, that shared a studio at 305 Beaver Hall Hill. Ten of the best-known female members of the Beaver Hall Group were Nora Collyer (1898-1979), Emily Coonan (1885-1971), Prudence Heward (1896-1947), Mabel Lockerby Mabel May (1882-1976), Kathleen Morris (1893-1986), Lilias Torrance Newton (1896-1980), Sarah Robertson (1891-1948), Anne Savage (1896-1971) and Ethel Seath (1879-1963). The group officially lasted from 1920 to 1923, when they gave up the studio on Beaver Hall Hill, but they remained in close contact. The Beaver Hall Group's modernist approach to painting focused on portraitures and humanized cityscapes and landscapes.
