SEATH, Ethel

Born
Montreal, Quebec, 1879
Died
Montreal, Quebec, 1963
Biography synopsis
A painter who enjoyed depicting everyday objects, Seath often painted still lifes and landscapes with an eye for abstract qualities. Her treatment of space was often decorative, with attention to how various forms interacted with each other. Due to familial financial constraints (her father was chronically ill), Seath began work as an illustrator for "The Montreal Witness" and later "The Montreal Star" soon after finishing high school. Her commercial success allowed her to enroll at the Art Association of Montreal and, in 1911, to join Maurice Cullen's sketching trips in the Quebec countryside. In 1917, she became an art teacher at The Study, a Montreal private girls' school, where she remained for 45 years. Despite initially having little inclination to teach, she was an engaging instructor and considered her years at the school as the happiest time of her life. She was known to encourage her students to "Fill the page!" and "Make a mess!" A founding member of the Beaver Hall Group, Seath also belonged to the Canadian Group of Painters and exhibited frequently with both associations. Her work was also shown in Baltimore, Maryland (1931), the New York World's Fair (1939), Yale University, Cambridge, Massachusetts, and the Tate Gallery, London. She is represented in the collections of The National Gallery of Canada and the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts.
