Allen Sapp was a Canadian Cree painter who was born in 1928. His mother died while he was young, so his grandmother, who features in many of Allen Sapp's paintings, raised him. His art expresses a sensitivity and vulnerability that is unique, especially for an artist during the 20th century. His career developed when he began selling his paintings to Allan Gonor, the doctor who was caring for Sapp's wife when she was extremely ill.
