RIP Bruno Bobak, Canadian War Artist

The Globe and Mail and other Canadian media outlets on Thursday reported the passing of Bruno Bobak. I didn't know his name, but I have seen and loved much of what he drew and painted in World War Two. The influence of the Group of Seven, an iconic Canadian school of post-impressionism, is visible in his work. Bobak was the youngest war artist to be officially sponsored by the Canadian military during the war, and was attached to the 4th Armoured Division, which served in Italy and NW Europe.
