Nicola De GrandmaisonJerry Cushner
My father had mentioned Mr. De Grandmaison to me several times and said that when was a young artist in Calgary Alberta, he studied under Nicola for an undertermined amount of time. He gave my father a great compliment on his skills with dealing with the pastel media. Until his passing in 2000, I think my father was probably the oldest art student living who attended the Calgary Art Institute of Learning (If I got the name of the school right)
Thought I would just pass on this trivia.

My mother has a pastel of me by Grandmaison and I am assuming it was Nicolas. My father had it commissioned about 1944 and we lived in Vancouver at that time. It could have been earler when we lived in Edmonton. Any info you could give would be appreciated. Thank you.
