“Theodosia developed a very strong sense of aesthetics, and at an early age sought to surround herself with expressions of fine art, material culture, writing and fine craft. Over her lifetime she built a remarkable collection of Canadian art including works by Lawren Harris, Arthur Lismer, Edwin Holgate, A.Y. Jackson, Albert Robinson, Anne Savage, E.J. Hughes and J.E.H. MacDonald. Many of these works were purchased directly from the artists, or from their dealers as newly available works. This collection was her passion and her pride, a part of her life that she considered essential to her soul.” Click here to read full biography
