| Holgate, Edwin H. Biography
Edwin Holgate joined the Group in 1931 and is considered to have played a relatively minor role in their history.
Holgate was born in Ontario, but raised in Montreal, where he began studying art at an early age. Following a number of years in Paris, both before and after the war, he returned permanently to Montreal in 1922. Holgate than opened a studio and taught wood engraving at the Ecole des Beaux Arts. He was friendly with Jackson and the Montreal artists of the Beaver Hall group and often went sketching with them in Quebec. At this point, he was considered a promising young artist, capable of competent oil paintings such as The Cellist.
