Dorothy Stevens

Between 1904 and 1911 Toronto native Dorothy Stevens received her art training in some of the most prestigious schools of London and Paris. By the time of her return to Canada in 1911 she was well travelled and demonstrated a high level of skill in printmaking. In Toronto the artist continued to develop her reputation, garnering excellent exhibition reviews and a Silver medal at the Panama-Pacific International Exhibition in San Francisco for the 19 etchings she displayed there. In addition to her etchings, Stevens also acquired a reputation as a fine portrait artist and many of her works can be found today in the collections of the National Gallery of Canada and the Art Gallery of Ontario. In 1919, Stevens solicited a commission from the Canadian War Memorials Fund. This resulted in a set of etchings documenting the home front activities of the Toronto shipbuilding yards and the munitions workers at the British Forgings plant. At the close of the war, she returned again to Europe on a travelling scholarship to continue her art. Stevens died in Toronto in 1966 at the age of 78.
