Item Overview


Augustus Frederick Kenderdine (Canadian 1870-1947), CATTLE IN A LANDSCAPE Signed l.r., oil on canvas 51 x 92cm Kenderdine first studied art at the Manchester School of Art. Subsequently, he established the business of 'Gus Kenderdine: Photographer and Art Dealer' in 1890. From 1890 to 1891, Kenderdine studied with Jules Lefèbvre at the Académie Julian in Paris, and his work was subsequently displayed at the Paris Salon. In 1901 and 1902 several of his paintings were hung at the Royal Academy annual Summer Exhibition. In 1908, he emigrated with his family to Canada and, for the next decade, was pre-occupied with the rigours of farming and ranching, before turning his farming operations over to his son and returning to his painting. Kenderdine exhibited his work across Canada. His sweeping romantic depictions of the Saskatchewan landscape were indelibly marked by his training in England and France. His imagery recast the province's topography in the comforting image of Europe.
