Canadian Artist Ken Danby Dies While Canoeing
Monday September 24, 2007
CityNews.ca Staff

You don't have to be a fan of Ken Danby to know about his work. The artist who used iconic Canadian images in his art has passed away doing something that would have made one of his canvases - canoeing in Algonquin Park.

The 67-year-old was well known for donating his work to charity and copies of his paintings were often used as 'prizes' to get you to donate to worthwhile causes. His most famous work is one that's quintessentially Canadian. "In The Crease" (top left) depicts a masked goaltender and was created in 1972. He was also the man behind "The Great Farewell" , a painting of Wayne Gretzky bidding goodbye to his hockey playing career. His watercolours of Olympic athletes earned him new fame during the Sarajevo Games in 1984. And his breath taking portraits of glaciers, topography and Niagara Falls are legendary.

It's believed the accomplished artist died of a heart attack but the true cause of his death won't be confirmed until an autopsy is performed this week. Danby, who earned the Order of Canada, achieved worldwide fame with his images and they will live on after him.

He's survived by his wife and three sons.
