Waddington's Auction House Biography and Notes
Born in Toronto, Ontario, Alan Collier attended the Ontario College of Art where he studied under Franklin Carmichael and J.E.H. MacDonald. After travelling across Canada by train in 1934, Collier continued his studies in New York City at the Art Students’ League. When he returned to Toronto in 1955, having spent 3 years in the Canadian Army, Collier found himself increasingly drawn towards painting. His background in mining and frequent road-trips with his family into the Canadian landscape informed much of his work. Nestled into a bend on the Chilcotin Road, Lee’s Corner bears the name of Norman Lee – a farmer whose failed journey to sell cattle at the Klondike gold camps resulted in his settlement of the area. In this canvas of rich earth-toned colouration, Collier captures both the stillness and the ruggedness of this small locality. Lee’s Corner, Chilcotin Road is emblematic of the founder of the town. Its rich simplicity speaks to his determination and to his return home – undaunted.
