The painting is titled High River, Alberta and it is very well executed employing a sophisticated knowledge of light, color and perspective. The painting itself is measuring about 30 (76 cm) by 20 (51 cm), and the frame is measuring 38 (96 cm) by 28 (71 cm). It is signed and dated by the artist in the lower right corner, and signed and titled at the back. This painting would be a very sound investment and a great addition to any collection.
Her love of drawing began at an early age and resulted in her art education at the Ontario College of Art in 1949. Here she was inspired by the artists Carl Schaefer and Eric Friefeld to explore new approaches in different media. She also became interested in the work of Japanese printmakers, Hiroshige and Hokusai as well as the French master Matisse. Continuing to paint part-time while raising her family, she began her art career in earnest while in Montreal and gained her first major recognition in the 1969 City of Montreal Art Exhibition.She also began teaching and became involved in various community outreach programmes, including the Artists for Kid Trust in Vancouver and other workshops in Ontario. In 1971 she went to Newfoundland for the Outports Arts Foundation. Eventually in 1981 she and her husband took over a print shop in Hibbs Cove Newfoundland. Anne Barry died in 2003.
