Eric Byrd is a Canadian Painter who studied with and was influenced by the Painters Eleven. ( http://www.jbtaylor.ca/banff.php#id=9&num=9 ). Born in Durban, South Africa in 1905 but spending a significant amount of time teaching and exhibiting at the University of McGill, he was briefly attached to the Art Faculty, Banff School of Fine Arts where he also taught. His work has been exhibited in South Africa on numerous occassions as well as in Canada at the Peachland Little Schoolhouse in Peachland BC.
This particular painting is an excellent example of his African influence as well as his love of flowers and abstract. Oil on Canvas, the colors are vibrant and show off well in a gold wood frame. I have included a personal letter that highlights some of his travel back and forth to Africa as well as his career as an artist. The painting is now a featured item of the Art Archive as a classic example of his work. (http://www.art-archives-southafrica.ch/BYRD.htm)
