This biography from the Archives of AskART:

Peter Haworth RCA, OSA, CGP, CSPWC (1889-1986)

Peter Haworth was a painter, illustrator, and teacher who was born in Lancaster, England and moved to Toronto, Canada in 1923, where he lived the rest of his life.  His mediums were acrylic, oil, watercolor, mixed mediums and stained glass.  His subjects were primarily  landscapes and coastal views.  His mature paintings were an expressionist style using vibrant and sometimes arbitrary colors and geometric shapes.

He studied at the Manchester School of Art and the Royal College of Art, London under Sir William Rothenstein (1872 - 1945) and Robert Anning Bell (1863 - 1933), graduating in 1922.  In Toronto he was Director of Art (1929 - 1955) at the Toronto Central Technical School.  His students included Jean D'Allaire and Aba Bayefsky. He also taught design at the University of Toronto.

During World War I he served with the Royal Flying Corps and won the Distinguished Flying Cross.  During World War II he was commissioned by the National Gallery as a home front war artist and was posted in British Columbia.

He was a member and President (1955- 1957) of the Ontario Society of Artists and President (1936) of the Canadian Society of Painters in Watercolor.  He was also a member of the Canadian Group of Painters (the successor to the Group of Seven) and a member of the Royal Canadian Academy.  He exhibited with the above organizations at many of the major museums and galleries in Canada.  He also exhibited at the Art Institute of Chicago in 1939 and 1940.

His work is in many private and public collections including The National Gallery of Canada, The Art Gallery of Ontario, The Art Gallery of Hamilton, The New Brunswick Museum and The London Art Gallery (Ontario).  His work as a stained glass designer can be seen in a commission of windows he did for the First Baptist Church, Ottawa.

His wife was Bobs Cogill Haworth (1904 - 1988), also a prominent artist, with whom he collaborated on the book Kingdom of the Saguenay (1936).

He is listed in A Dictionary of Canadian Artists (1974), by Colin S. MacDonald, published by Canadian Paperbacks Ltd. (8 volumes); also in The Collector's Dictionary of Canadian Artists at Auction (2001), by Anthony R. Westbridge and Diana L. Bodnar, published by Westbridge Publications Ltd. (4 Volumes); and in Falk's Who Was Who in American Art (3 volumes).  His work is also discussed and illustrated in Four Decades (1972) by Paul Duval, published by Clark Irwin & Co. Ltd. (191 pgs, color); and in Art Gallery of Ontario - the Canadian Collection, published by McGraw-Hill Co.of Canada Ltd.
