Biography   William Wallace (W.A.) Armstrong


William Wallace Armstrong (AKA: William Armstrong) (1) was a painter, photographer, illustrator and educator.  His watercolors of 19th-century frontier life, in a style similar to Paul Kane (2) and George Catlin, are extraordinary first hand images of the Victorian era. Consequently, his works are not only treasured for their aesthetics but, equally for their documentation of life in early Canada.

He was born in Dublin, Ireland; emigrated to Canada in 1851; and died in Toronto, Ontario where he had lived most of his life.

His primary medium was watercolor.  However, there are also works by him in oil, gouache*, ink, ink wash, pencil, pastel, mixed mediums, hand colored etching*, wood engraving* and lithography*.    ...  Displaying 750 of 11842 characters.
