Lilias Torrance Newton
Newton was widely known as one of Canada’s foremost portrait artists, and figure studies were an important aspect of her work. Here, she depicts herself as independent, modern and urbane – an example of the new progressive Canadian woman. Her direct gaze and composed facial expression hints at her inner character, something she was exceptionally talented at capturing in her portraits.
