After moving to Canada, Kilpin was inspired by the Canadian arts
scene and Canadian landscape to experiment with new types of painting.
Especially after he joined the Montreal Arts Club in 1912, we can
detect changes in Kilpin’s art, particularly in paintings
and prints of the Canadian landscape.
The traditionally-trained, British artist was inspired to paint the landscape of his new home using a more expressive, impressionist approach. Works such as The Harbour, Back Road to Shawbridge Station, and Clark’s Creek demonstrate Kilpin’s experimentation with new landscape techniques. These and other landscapes can be found in the Museum’s Collection database found here.
