EWART, Peter Maxwell (1918-2001). Born in Kisbey, Saskatchewan, Ewart studied commercial art in Montreal and New York in the late 1930s. During this time he was strongly influenced by the work of Frederick Waugh, Carl Rungius, and Belmore Brown. After visiting Banff and the West Coast of B.C. during the early 1940s, he moved out to the coast in 1948. His early works were pure landscapes, then, in the early 1950s he introduced figures into his pictures, especially single cowboys on horseback, for which he became recognized. Many of his landscapes feature the Cariboo country of B.C., an area he was particularly fond of. He exhibited at the RCA in 1947 and 1950, and the MMFA from 1943-50.
This wonderful Canadian west coast ocean scape would make a wonderful addition to any home, office or gallery.
