MARTIN, Thomas Mower, Canadian artist, born in London, England, 5 October, 1838. He was educated at the military college of Enfield and in the South Kensington art galleries, and in 1862 came to Toronto, Canada, where he was the first artist that was able to live by his profession. He was one of the founders of the Ontario art union, the Ontario society of artists, and the Royal Canadian academy, was president of the first society of artists in Canada, and in 1877 became director of the Ontario school of art, which he had established. He removed to New York in 1884, and has contributed to the exhibitions of the American watercolor society and the National academy of design. Mr. Martin has invented a stretching-frame for canvas or paper. Among his works are "The Untouched Wilderness," painted for the queen of England in 1882, and now in Windsor castle ; "A Summer Idyl" and " Whiskey Ring," exhibited at the Centennial in Philadelphia in 1876 ; and "Sunrise, Muskoka," and "Canadian Game," both of which were shown at the colonial and Indian exhibition in London in 1886.
