Notice biographique
Kathleen Jean Munn studied at the Westbourne School in Toronto with F. McGillivray Knowles, and in 1915 and 1916 at the Art Students League School in Woodstock, New York, with Max Weber, Boardman Robinson and Andrew Dasburg. She also studied briefly at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in 1915. In 1909 she began to exhibit publicly at the Ontario Society of Artists and the Royal Canadian Academy, and at the Canadian National Exhibition. In 1914 she won first prize at the Art Students League Summer School in Woodstock, New York. She attended discussions hosted by Bertram Brooker. She was interested in Cubism and she is credited with introducing Post-Impressionism to Canada, but her work was often met with incomprehension. Her work is at the Art Gallery of Ontario and in a number of private collections.
