Vintage oil on board floral still life by Paul Duff, showing a bunch of red clover on a white background.
Born in Hamilton, Canada, January 15th, 1928, Paul Duff has been painting professionally since 1945. A graduate of McMaster University and Hamilton Teacher’s College, he subsidized his career in the visual arts as an itinerant teacher in Switzerland and Brazil. At age 22, he exhibited with members of Canada’s Group of Seven, leading to official recognition by the National Gallery of Canada as a Canadian Painter in August, 1956.
Nineteen years later, he was invited to exhibit at the National Gallery of Brazil in Rio de Janeiro. The next year he became the first Canadian to receive an honorary citizenship to the City of Rio de Janeiro and later inducted as a member of the order of Honorary Cariocas.
Paul Duff returned to Canada in 1981. His paintings appear in public and private collections with representations in Australia, New Zealand, United Kingdom, Germany, France, Holland, Switzerland, Brazil, Bermuda, the Philippines, China, and the United States. To date he has had ninety-one solo exhibitions on three continents.
In May, 1997, a painting from his Scottish collection was acquired by the National Gallery of Scotland for their permanent collection. About the same time, Paul Duff was conferred a knighthood in the Order of St. Andrew of Jerusalem.

He is the author of the book, “The Eternal Apprentice” (1999) used as a text-reference book at the Ontario College of Art and Design, and Sheridan College. In 2009, his autobiography, “My Life, My Art” covering seventy years of his career was published and is available through his gallery (226-974-1928).
