Jack Leonard Shadbolt, OC OBC (February 4, 1909 – November 22, 1998) was a Canadian painter.

Early life

Born in Shoeburyness, England, Shadbolt came to Canada with his parents in April 1911.[1] He was raised in Victoria, British Columbia.[2]

Jack Shadbolt studied at the Art Students' League in New York City (1948) and in London (1937) and Paris (1938).

From 1928 to 1937, he taught in high schools in Duncan, British Columbia and Vancouver, British Columbia.[3]

Starting in 1938, he taught and studied with Frederick Varley at the Vancouver School of Art.[3]

He married Doris Shadbolt in 1945 and the couple moved to Burnaby, a suburb of Vancouver, in 1950.[4][5]

War artist

During World War II, Shadbolt was an official War artist in the Canadian Army.[3]

Later years

After the war, Shadbolt returned to his faculty position at the Vancouver School of Art (VSA). When he retired in 1966, he had become the head of painting and drawing section. He devoted more time to painting.[6]

In 1987, Shadbolt and his wife founded the Vancouver Institute for the Visual Arts, a charitable foundation to provide grants to individuals in support of their artistic endeavours. The foundation was later renamed The Jack and Doris Shadbolt Foundation for the Visual Arts.[7]

Recognition

In 1956, works by Shadbolt along with those of Louis Archambault and Harold Town represented Canada at the Venice Biennale.[8]

In 1972, he was made an Officer of the Order of Canada. In 1990, he was awarded the Order of British Columbia. Throughout his life, Shadbolt continued to advance the boundaries of his art.[6]

On 24 August 2001 Canada Post issued 'The Space Between Columns #21 (Italian), 1965, Jack Shadbolt' in the Masterpieces of Canadian art series. The stamp was designed by Pierre-Yves Pelletier based on an oil painting "'The Space Between Columns #21 (1965) by Jack Shadbolt.
