Brooker – Adventurous Painter

This is Hot Weather, oil on canvas, by Canadian artist Bertram Richard Brooker, coming up for auction in May at Heffel Fine Art. Brooker (1888 – 1955) was among the most adventurous Canadian painters of his generation, as well as author of a Dostoyevskian novel Think of the Earth (1936) that made him the recipient of the inaugural Governor General’s Award for Literary Merit in 1937. He was also an editor and publisher.
