About Robert Magee

Canada’s premier horse painter, Magee was born and raised in Toronto but over the years he found himself being drawn westward where he could focus on reminding us just how deeply we are connected with the history of the horse.

Over the years Magee’s talent and contribution have been recognized time again, with major exhibitions, including a one man show of his work at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington in 1990 and 1999.

Magee has uncovered another thread in the history of the horse that is taking him back to a hitherto unexplored Canadian history: his own. His latest works comprise a very personal group of studies with inspiration drawn from around the farm owned by the Magee family from 1828 until the second world war.

Now Magee embarks on the next phase of his journey in the village of Schomberg, just north of Toronto, with its magnificent horse farms and the rolling hills of King and Caledon.
