Binning and Billaux: A Place in Art History


West Vancouver is home to numerous artists drawn to its spectacular landscape and proximity to both the mountains and ocean. B.C. Binning, a key figure of modernism on the West Coast of Canada, created numerous lyrical drawings inspired by landscapes and scenes. Jane Billaux, who moved to Canada from England in the 1930’s painted local people and places over her long career.
