Bertram Brooker (1888–1955), editor, critic, dramatist, novelist, and artist, was once one of the most remarkable figures in Canadian cultural history. He was the first Canadian painter to exhibit abstract art, and his paintings hang in every major gallery in the country. He won the first governor general’s award for fiction in 1936.
