Notice biographique
Dalla Husband spent most of her youth in Vernon, B.C. where she took art lessons with Miss Jessie Topham Brown who had studied at the Slade School in England. In 1924, she moved to London and later to Paris where she studied printmaking with Stanley William Hayter at Atelier 17, a center for Surrealist artists, including Miro, Picasso among others. She exhibited at the Salon des Surindépendants in 1929 as well as galleries in Paris, London and Prague. She was engaged in the Republican cause during the Spanish Civil War and spent time in Spain in 1937. Her prints were included in the artists' books "Solidarite" (1938) and "Fraternite" (1939) produced in support of the Republicans. She remained in Europe for 16 years, leaving just before the German occupation of France. She lived in West Vancouver for a year before moving to Mexico, where she joined a group of Canadian artists in 1943. While in Mexico, she died from an infection. Apparently, Husband was preparing an exhibit for New York City at the time of her death . A large collection of her work is held at the The Winnipeg Art Gallery where a major retrospective of her work took place in 1995. A group of paintings were donated by her father, C.W. Husband, to the City of Vernon on the occasion of its 60th Anniversary.
