Arthur Drummond
(1891 - 1977)

Born in Toronto. Arthur Drummond's first career, like that of his father, was in banking. He attended the Ontario College of Art in the evenings, however, where he studied under noted artists such as C.M. Manly and J.W. Beatty. It was there that he won the Brigden Scholarship in 1919. During this period he worked with A.J. Casson, J.E.H. MacDonald, and Arthur Lismer.

While he was a bank manager in Orono, Ontario around 1925 Drummond also performed as first violinist in the General Motors Symphony Orchestra. Through the years he exhibited regularly with the Royal Canadian Academy and the Art Association of Montreal. Although he was an excellent figure painter, he preferred to paint landscapes for the feeling of space they inspire.

In 1946 Drummond retired from banking and was able to devote all his energies to painting. His work is represented in collections across Canada and Abroad. In 1975 the Robert McLaughlin Gallery, Oshawa honored him with a retrospective exhibition spanning 63 years of work.
