Paul Braid

Paul Braid (1920-1999) painted landscapes, life and portraits for over 65 years, from the age of 13 to his passing in December 1999. After studying under Franklin Carmichael (of Group of Seven fame), Paul graduated from the Ontario College of Art in 1947, and came west in 1953. Paul did not limit his exploration and experimentation, painting in a variety of different styles and mediums. He also taught throughout the province for the University of Alberta Faculty of Extension, and pursued his art career full time until October 1999.

Paul's love of history and nature are evident throughout his work. Concentrating on painting scenes of Alberta's splendour and heritage, Paul's work has captured the essence of the natural beauty that is found in Alberta's mountains and homesteads.

Paul had 22 paintings on tour with the Art Gallery of Alberta's Travelling Exhibition Program (Alberta Foundation for the Arts). These paintings were on tour until 2005. Paul's work is also found in art collections, both public and private, around the world.
