Tom Stone PhotoTom Stone was born in Fownhope, Herefordshire, England in 1894 and first immigrated to Edmonton, Alberta, Canada in 1914. Tom, at a young age moved to Vancouver and studied evenings at the Vancouver School of art. Soon after he moved to Ontario and studied art full time at the Ontario College of Art in Toronto. In 1925 he was awarded the Governor General’s Award for being that year’s outstanding student at the OCA. Tom continued to further his studies under noted artist Andre L’Hote at his Academie in Paris, France and he also studied at the Academie Moderne also in Paris.

Tom became a longtime member and also a director of the Ontario Society of Artists in the 1930’s and continued actively painting until his passing in 1978. He enjoyed working in oils, but he also created a few lithographs over the years. Being an outdoorsman, Tom created a large number of snow laden winter landscapes, some including campsites, hunters and dog teams. Some of his favourite painting settings were found in the Magnetawan River area near Parry Sound, the Muskoka Lake and Haliburton region in Ontario and also in the Gatineau Hills in Quebec. During a few years of study and travel from 1927 to 1929 he also exhibited his paintings in Italy, France and Switzerland.

Tom’s paintings are now in numerous collections world wide. It was said early on by art critics of the day, that he showed “great skill in the handling of snow especially with the impressions of the gleam of waning sunlight on it.”

In 1929 Tom had his first ever one-man show, which was presented at the Art Gallery of Toronto (today known as the Art Gallery of Ontario). The A.G.O. also holds some of Tom’s works in their permanent art collection. Tom also exhibited with the R.C.A. starting in 1923 to 1943.

 

Tom Stone passed away in 1978 at the age of 84.
