Acrylic on canvas - 13 x 10 inches
Collection Galerie de Bellefeuille
Marion Wagshal is a native of Trinidad and she was born there in 1943. After emigrating to Montréal, Québec, she attended Macdonald College at McGill University and received her Teaching Diploma in 1961. Wagschal went on to study at Concordia University where she received her BFA degree in 1965 and her MFA in 1967.

Ms. Wagshal has had many solo exhibitions and her work appears in many prestigious private and public collections. Ms. Wagshal is known for her subtle subdued palette, the alluring painterly quality of her brushwork, and her unconventional choice of subject. Unlike most figure painters who focus on the young and the beautiful, this artist paints people she is well acquainted with and her view, which reaches out beyond the limits of the canvas, is at once honest, direct, and loving.
