Nothing wrong with realism when it's done right.
Ken Danby, the artist who created the 1972 painting "In The Crease" has passed away at age 67. The manager of Guelph, ON's Danby Studio, Greg McKee, said the realist painter died on Sunday while on a canoe trip in Algonquin Park.
Danby was born in Sault Ste. Marie, ON in 1940 and established himself as one of the world's foremost realist painters over his career.
Danby's iconic egg tempera painting "At The Crease" will be on display at the Art Gallery of Ontario (Toronto) until Oct. 7, '07.
This will please Danby's fans, those who appreciate realism, and fans of the fastest game in the world.
He left us too soon.
