Name of creator
Canadian painter Marion Wagschal was born in Port of Spain, Trinidad, in 1943, as the daughter of Jewish refugees from Germany. The family immigrated to Canada in 1951. Wagschal received her graduate degree from Sir George Williams University (now Concordia University), Montreal, in 1975, and went on to become a professor at the university in the Faculty of Fine Arts’ Painting and Drawing Department, where she taught for thirty-seven years before retiring in 2008.
