Saskatchewan NAC Auction House Biography and Notes
William Goodridge Roberts was a Canadian painter known for his landscape paintings and unassuming still lifes and interiors. He trained at the Ecole des beaux-arts de Montreal from 1923 to 1925 and later enrolled at the Art Students League in New York from 1926 to 1928. Taking courses with American painter and founder of the Ashcan School, John Sloan, he began a lifelong commitment to modernism. Moving to Ottawa in 1930, Roberts held his first professional solo exhibition, an annual event that would continue until the late 1960s. . In 1952, Roberts was one of four artists in Canada's first official participation at the Venice Biennale and he received one of the earliest Royal Society of Canada Fellowships to paint in Europe. An Officer of the Order of Canada, Goodridge Roberts was among the first Canadian painters to treat the landscape, the figure and still life with equal emphasis. In 1969 he was given a traveling retrospective exhibition by the National Gallery of Canada, an unusual honour for a living artist at the time. William Goodridge Roberts died in 1974.
