Ken Danby


Ken Danby was one of Canada’s foremost artists; a painter and printmaker of international renown best known for his realist style.

Danby’s subject matter ranged widely, but it was his images of Canadian landscapes and life that captured the public’s attention; like “At the Crease”, the 1972 egg tempera painting depicting a nameless hockey goalie viewed from ice-level defending his net.

Danby’s works are owned by private collectors worldwide, as well as by many institutions, including The National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa, The Art Institute of Chicago, The Museum of Modern Art in New York, and the Montreal Museum of Fine Art.
