Very Rare, Original Canadian Impressionistic Landscape Oil Painting on masonite by Jo hn Gr eer (1878-1950), A.L.C., Titled, "On the little Do n, Near Orio le Ont”, Signed twice, Dated, 1943, Original Wooden Frame: 19.4” x 16 1/4”; Sight Image: 13.4” x 10 1/4” Full Image: 13 1/2” x 10 1/2”.
Printed with black ink, in full, on verso is "On the little Do n, Near Orio le Ont, J Greer, To Cousin Beth, On the Occasion of her Marriage, with all good wishes. Lizzie & John Greer, Sept. 29. 1943”.
Don is in reference to the Don River. Oriole, Ontario is attributed to be the old CN (Canadian Northern, now Canadian National) Railway station, originally called Duncan, located south of York Mills. It was changed to Oriole after 1918 when Canadian Northern went bankrupt. It was in operation until 1978, & demolished in 1987. The area around it is now called the Leaside Spur Trail. It's located south of York Mills Road, & north of Lawrence Ave. East. The Don River closest to it, is south of York Mills Road, & east of Don Mills Road with the Donalda Golf Club as a landmark.
This is in keeping with the fact that from the 1940 Canada Voters Lists, Mr. Gre er 'artist' was living in York Mills.
Exhibitions included ones at the Eaton Fine Art Gallery in Montreal (1927 & 1929), with Frederick Stanley Haines in Toronto, & Toronto studio exhibitions, c1935-36.
He was a member of the Arts & Letters Club (A.L.C.), Toronto.
