John H.Beynon (1890-1970)
John Hubert Beynon was born in Minnedosa, Manitoba in 1890. He was the nephew of Canadian artist Albert Curtis Williamson (1867- 1944) who was nicknamed: "the Canadian Rembrandt". Beynon studied art under George Bellows and Thomas Fogarty at the Art Students' League in New York and in the Central Ontario School of Art, Toronto under William Cruikshank. He was employed, as a commercial artist, by the Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co., Toronto (1917-1930) and other companies until his retirement in 1956.
Beynon painted landscapes in oils and pastels. He painted all over Ontario (e.g. Algoma), and in the Laurentians, Quebec. Many of his paintings were done outdoors. He was a member of the Canadian Society of Graphic Art (1926-28). John Beynon is represented in the National Gallery of Canada by a delightful landscape, ‘ Evening on the Don’ (1923). Another painting of his: ‘Waterfall and Moon’ is in the Art Gallery of Ontario. John Beynon exhibited at the Ontario Society of art and the National Gallery of Canada. In 1938, The Telegram reported of an exhibition of John Beynon’s landscapes and small paintings in Toronto. The writer praised the artist for “effective handling” of the lighting and the water in the “delightful” paintings. One of his pastel landscapes won a prize at the 1970 CNE. He died, sometimes after in 1970.
The style of his painting has the unmistakable look and feel of the Barbizon and Hudson River schools of art. However, the brushwork is looser which suggests that the artist melded the ‘new’ Group of Seven style with the ‘old’ French and American impressionism styles. Very few pieces of his work are available in the market.
