Born in Oshawa, Ontario
1903 - 2002
Isabel McLaughlin studied in Paris, Vienna and at Toronto's Ontario College of Art under Arthur Lismer.
McLaughlin was an early modernist, says Joan Murray, the first curator of Canadian art at the Art Gallery of Ontario. She calls McLaughlin's work "a touch of cubism...with a theme of nature."
Among her mentors were A.Y. Jackson, Lawren Harris and Arthur Lismer. McLaughlin was also closely associated with the Painters Eleven, an independent group influenced by the Group of Seven.
In 1933 - the year the Group of Seven broke up - she helped found the Canadian Group of Painters. She became the first woman president of the group in 1939.
McLaughlin received the Order of Canada for visual arts and the Order of Ontario. The Isabel McLaughlin Gallery within Oshawa's Robert McLaughlin Gallery is named after her. Robert McLaughlin was her grandfather.
