Kenneth Lochhead


Of the members of the “Regina Five” Kenneth Lochhead (1926-2006) is arguably the most successful and collected artist of the group.

This print is after Lochhead’s masterpiece “Blue Extension” from 1963. The canvas is in the collection of the Department of Foreign Affairs, Ottawa. It is one of Lochhead’s most iconic and beloved works.  

Lochhead’s mastery of color and composition are perfectly demonstrated here - the work has a friendly dynamism and freshness over 50 years after its creation. In addition to an exhibition history that spanned half a century, Lochhead was also a dedicated educator, teaching at universities across the country including becoming a professor at the University of Ottawa. 

Lochhead’s work can be found in every major Canadian collection, both private and institutional from coast to coast, including the Art Gallery of Ontario, Beaverbrook Art Gallery, Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, Vancouver Art Gallery, Royal Bank of Canada, TD Bank, Imperial Oil, Cadillac Farview, Esso, Xerox and many more.

Lochhead was awarded an Order of Canada in 1971 and the Governor General’s Award in 2006

This work, published by the renowned German-Canadian printing house Markgraf was the result of a partnership, formed in 1967, with the Canada Council to promote contemporary Canadian art.

The entire body of work is in the permanent collection of the National Gallery.
