FANSHAW, Hubert Valentine CPE, CSGA, MSA


Hubert was born in Sheffield, England in 1878 and studied at the Sheffield School of Art, at the Royal College of Art in London and at the Académie Royale des Beaux-Arts in Antwerp. He arrived in Winnipeg, Manitoba in 1912 and became the art director/teacher at the Kelvin High School in Winnipeg where he remained working until his death in 1940.


He regularly exhibited his artwork and was primarily a landscape painter and graphic artist with a speciality in woodcut and lino-cut scenes of Western Canadian as well as painting in Southern California. For a while he was a resident of Los Angeles and painted there during 1923-24 while there to install a mural along with noted American artist and architect James Dolena.
