Maine, USA 1886 - Christ Church, Barbados 1967

After
 a
 scandalous
 first
 exhibition
 in
 1913
 at
 the
 Montreal
 Musée
 des
 beaux‐arts, 
Lyman
 adopted
 Paris
 as
 his
 home
 base.
 He
 joined
 the
 Red
 Cross
 during
 the
 Great 
War,
 following
 his
 training
 with
 the
 Canadian
 army.
 In
 Paris,
 between
 1913
 and
 1931,
 he
 called
 friend
 the
 likes
 of
 James
 Wilson
 Morrice,
 Orthon
 Friesz,
 Foujita, 
Zadkine,
 Matthias,
 Picabia,
 the
 Perret
 brothers
 and
 James
 Joyce,
 Jules
 Romain,
 Charles 
Vildrac
 and
Gertrude
 Stein
 amongst 
the 
writers.


His 
return 
to
 Montreal
 marked 
the 
beginnings 
of
 a
 new
 era 
as
 contrary 
to 
the 
Group 
of
 Seven
 Lyman
 advocated
 internationalism.
 He
 thus
 declared
 opposition
 to
 “the 
regionalists
 who
 only
 produced
 banal
 clichés”.
 As
 an
 art
 critic
 and
  director
 of
exhibitions
 at
 the
 head
 of
 the
 Société
 d’Art
 Contemporain,
 this
 grand
 agent
 of
 the modernist
 ideas
 of
 the
 École
 de
 Paris
 attempted
 to
 “deprovincialize”
 Quebec
 and 
Canadian 
art.
