Legh Mulhall Kilpin was an accomplished British born artist and educator who lived and worked in Canada from 1906 until his death in 1919. Langley Centennial Museum has 125 works by Kilpin. This body of work owned by the Township of Langley constitutes the largest public holding of art by this artist in the world. It includes oil paintings, portraits, watercolours, prints, and Art Nouveau decorative illustrations.
In 2003, the museum, in collaboration with the University of Victoria’s Department of History in Art, undertook extensive research on the artist and his work. Kilpin Online is a web based portal that includes highlights from this research and provides links to more detailed essays and images of work by the artist. Click here to visit that site.
That same year, a publication on Legh Mulhall Kilpin was also produced by the museum featuring works from private collections along with the works in the museum’s collection. The book can be purchased through the museum’s Gift Shop.
