Biography

Sam Borenstein (15 January 1908 – 15 December 1969)[1] was a Canadian painter. Born in Lithuania, Borenstein immigrated to Canada in 1921. During his forty-year career he painted numerous scenes of Montreal and Laurentian villages and Quebec landscapes bustling with human activity, using brilliant colours and exuberant brushwork. Borenstein was best known for his cityscapes and rural scenes, but also produced numerous portraits and still lifes. His works were on show at Galerie l'Art français from the 1960s.[2]

In 1992, Joyce Borenstein, the artist's daughter, a film animator and artist in her own right, produced an animated film entitled The Colours of My Father: A Portrait of Sam Borenstein, which was nominated for an Academy Award.
