Two obits, one in the Gazette and one at Hour, about Henry Lehmann, a visual art critic who contributed regularly for the Gazette for many years (and before that, the Montreal Star) and CBC Daybreak.
Most recently, he was an art history teacher at Vanier College, where he died of a heart attack in his office on Thursday.
Though Lehmann stopped writing for the Gazette in 2008, many of his later articles are still online (on the old Gazette website). Among them:
- Symbol of promise, tinged with decay
- Expo 67’s sculptors, then and now
- Search for meaning goes well beneath the skin
- Darkly humorous show created by chance
- Exhibit tells story of Jewish life in Iraq through photos
- Art as a slice of life
- What good is a chair you can’t sit in?
- Belated recognition: Despite big friends and a National Gallery exhibit, Pegi Nicol MacLeod was mostly forgotten, until now
- Life with an invisible beast
- Soho on the St. Lawrence
- Hero worship
- I sing the body of work electronic
- The aerodynamics of taste and trend
- Faith in painting
- The collectors among us show us what they have
- No guilded frames at Biennale
- Self-portraiture survives and thrives in digital photos
And that’s just the stuff Google has over Lehmann’s last two years.
Lehmann was either 64 or 65, depending on what source you trust.
