Cowley Abbott Auction House Biography and Notes

Born in Montreal, Quebec, on April 7, 1925, William Paterson Ewen was interested in art beginning at an early age. As a toddler, Ewen asked his mother for wax to make a tree and several small figures. Ewen's mother was uninterested in décor and refused to purchase decorative items for their house until Ewen was thirteen and requested artist reproductions from Jean-Baptiste Greuze and Jean-François Millet. Three years later, at age sixteen, Ewen produced his first major artistic project--a clay bust of his sister. Around this time, Ewen visited his aunt in Ottawa, where he toured the National Museum of Man (now the Canadian Museum of History). At this museum, Ewen was inspired by Japanese woodprints, and landscapes. Throughout Ewen's life, Japanese art would be important to his art making practice.
