 Oscar Cahén (1916–1956)

Oscar Cahén was born  on February 8, 1916, in Copenhagen and arrived in Montréal from Europe on July 13, 1940 as an unwilling refugee. Yet in a few short years the vibrant and emotionally complex artist would broaden the scope of illustration and painting in Canada. Cahén died suddenly in 1956, but not before rising to be one of the nation’s most celebrated illustrators as well as a major influence on fellow abstract painters, with whom he formed the renowned artist collective Painters Eleven.
