John Hammond était un peintre, enseignant et graveur canadien né le 11 avril 1843 à Montréal. Dès son plus jeune âge, son père, marbrier, le recruta pour travailler auprès de lui. À peine adulte, il se joint à la milice locale et, en 1860, il partit chercher fortune en Nouvelle-Zélande. Cette expérience marquera le début de ses nombreux voyages à travers le monde et de sa vie d’aventurier. À son retour à Montréal, il obtient une place de photographe auprès du célèbre William Notman mais son esprit d’aventure l’amène rapidement vers les grands espaces qu’il affectionne. Il se joint au Recensement Géologique du Canada qui s’affaire à ce moment à poser les rails qui formeront le chemin de fer du Canadien Pacifique. C’est aussi à cet époque qu’il développe une pensée profondément chrétienne qui marquera son œuvre jusqu’à la fin de sa vie. Au début des années 1880, on le retrouve en Europe où il peindra en compagnie des Whistler et Millet tant en France qu’aux Pays-Bas. Membre de l’Académie Royale canadienne, il exposera au Salon de paris de 1886 ainsi qu’à la London Royal Academy et la New York National Academy of Design. De retour au pays, il se voit confié par William Van Horne, président du Canadien Pacifique, la réalisation de murales pour les hôtels et bureau de la compagnie du chemin de fer partout au Canada. Il est nommé directeur du département des beaux-arts de l’Université de Sackville au NouveauBrunswick en 1893. Il s’éteint en 1939, à l’âge de 96 ans laissant une œuvre qui se retrouve aujourd’hui partout au Canada tant au Musée canadien des Beaux-Arts qu’au Musée McCord à Montréal. Le Balcon d’art est fier d’être l’un des principaux responsables de la protection et de la diffusion de l’œuvre de ce Maître canadien.


John Hammond was a Canadian painter, teacher and printmaker born April 11th 1843 in Montreal. At a very young age, he was recruited by his father to work as a marble cutter. By the time he was barely a young man, he had joined a local militia and, by 1860, he had gone to seek fortune in New Zealand. That experience would mark the first of many peregrinations all over the planet that would be the hallmark of Hammond’s life. Upon his return to Montreal in the mid-1860s, he could be found working as a staff photographer for the famed William Notman but his adventurous streak would soon take him to more exotic locales. He then joined the Geological Survey of Canada that was in the middle of laying the tracks for the Canadian Pacific Railway. That is also the time when he became a devout Christian, a trait that would be reflected in his art for the rest of his life. By the 1880s, he was in Europe, painting in Holland and in France with the likes of painters such as Whistler and Millet. A member of the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts, he would also participate in the 1886 Paris Salon and his work would be shown at the London Royal Academy and the New York National Academy of Design. Back in Canada, he was commissioned by William Van Horne, president of the CPR to create murals for the railway’s hotels and offices throughout Canada. In 1893, he was appointed head of the Fine Arts department of Mount Allison University in Sackville NB. The artist passed away at the age of 96 in 1939, leaving an oeuvre that can now be found in major collection through Canada, including the National Gallery and the McCord Museum. Le Balcon d’art is proud to be a major torch holder in perpetuating and guarding the legacy of this great Canadian Master.
