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.
Wagschal’s works have been displayed on international and national platforms and her works are featured in private and public collections throughout the world, including the Musée d’art contemporaire in Montreal, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, the Confederation Centre of the Arts in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, the Musée de Joliette, the Musée des Beaux Arts du Québec, the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, the Plattsburgh State Art Museum, and the Robert McLaughlin Gallery (Oshawa, ON).
