James McCorkindale

James McCorkindale was born in Glasgow, Scotland in 1886 and studied art in Glasgow School of Art, where he won the annual Sir Francis Powell Award in 1910-1911 before immigrating to Montréal in 1912.

Shortly after moving to Montréal he worked for several years as a commercial artist and soon opened his own art shop called the Shagpat Studio in Montréal. By 1930, McCorkindale decided to accept a staff position at the Art Department of Sir George Williams University (school of art), in Montréal. Becoming the Director of the school three years later.

Working in both oil and watercolour, he is best known for his landscapes and harbour scenes with boats and docks. James traveled and painted in Rockport and Gloucester, Massachusetts and mingled within the artist's colony there and also in Nova Scotia and in Baie St. Paul, Québec.

McCorkindale exhibited his work at the Art Association of Montréal and the Royal Canadian Academy for a number of years. Today his works are held in many Canadian and American private art collections.

 

James passed away in 1956.
