Ernest Lindner

Ernest Lindner was born on May 1st, 1897, in Vienna, Austria. Following his migration to Canada in 1926, Lindner studied art in night classes under Augustus Kenderdine at the University of Saskatchewan. He began teaching a night class for the Saskatoon Technical Collegiate in 1931, where he eventually became a full-time instructor and Head of the Art Department (1931-1962). He returned to Austria to take a Master course in etching and stone lithography at the Akademie der Angewandten Kunst of Vienna (1959).

Lindner was extremely active in the local, provincial and national arts communities. He was a member and President of the Saskatoon Art Association, one of the first members on the Saskatchewan Arts Board, and a member of the first professional society of artists in Saskatchewan.

Lindner worked full-time as an artist from 1962 to1988, and was known for his engraving and his watercolours. His works have shown throughout Canada and internationally at Canada House Gallery, in London, England, and at Canadian Cultural centres in Paris and Brussels. Among the many awards Lindner received throughout his lifetime, are a Honourary Doctor of Law Degree from the University of Saskatchewan (1972), membership in the Order of Canada (1979), and a Life Time Award for Excellence in the Arts from the Saskatchewan Arts Board he helped to establish (1988). He passed away in Saskatoon in 1988.
