Stanley Cosgrove was born in Montreal in 1911. He began his artistic training at the École des Beaux-Arts in Montreal in 1929 and then at the Art Association of Montreal with Edwin Holgate as a drawing teacher. Later, he studied at the Academy of San Carlos in Mexico, under the tutelage of Jose Clemente Orozco. A multidisciplinary artist, his works are grouped under three main themes: landscape, portrait and still lifes. His works are characterized by the precision and strength of the line, especially when dealing with characters. In 1967, he was designed a member of the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts.
Many of his works belong to important private and public collections such as the National Gallery of Canada, the Art Gallery of Ontario and the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria.
