About Kathleen Munn
“I believe in myself, since it is all I have.” —Kathleen Munn, c. 1925
Kathleen Munn (1887–1974) was an early adopter of modern art in Canada. Yet, during her lifetime, Munn existed on the outskirts of the Canadian art scene. Known for her reimagining of typical subjects – landscapes, animals, still lifes and even biblical themes – Munn’s artistic language is bold, colourful and uniquely her own.
