Bertram Richard Brooker was born in Croydon, England in 1888. He moved with his parents to Portage la Prairie in 1905 and later to Toronto in 1921.
Brooker acquired a reputation as a writer, painter, musician, and poet. He was a charter member of the Canadian Group of Painters and he won the Governor General’s Award for fiction in 1936 for ‘Think of the Earth’.
Bertram Brooker employed a variety of media and is a key example of liberation and innovation in the extensive history of Canadian art. Through a diversity of artistic interpretations and styles, his work captures both spiritual and commercial perspectives.
