Birth: Jan. 2, 1867
Ontario, Canada
Death: Apr. 18, 1944
Ontario, Canada

Profession: artist and painter
R.C.A., O.S.A.

Founding member 1907 and secretary
1908-9 of the Canadian Art Club and
a member of its executive council
1910-15, Williamson brought Dutch
subject matter and technique to
Toronto in the 1890s.
Nicknamed the "Canadian Rembrandt" and
known primarily as a portraitist, he
painted genre scenes, interiors and
landscapes, typically in a dark tonal
style developed after more than 10
years of painting in France and Holland
following a brief period of study in
Paris (1889). He returned to Toronto
in 1904 and that year was awarded a
silver medal of the St. Louis Universal
Exposition. Williamson's later work is
more loosely painted and in a higher key.
Notable among his portraits is that of
Sir Frederick Banting.
