"I knew I wanted to do things simply and intensely and as directly as possible, and I've never changed from that idea." - Maxwell Bennett Bates (1973).

Maxwell Bennett Bates was a painter, architect, draughtsman, printmaker, poet, writer, philosopher, and one of the pioneers of Expressionism* in Canada.  He was a central figure of the Western Canadian art communities where he lived, a nationally recognized modernist, and, when he lived in London, he was welcomed into the vortex of British modernism.  Examples of his paintings, drawings and prints are in virtually every major art museum in Canada.
