Bio

Alexandra Luke (Margaret McLaughlin) was born in Montreal. She trained under Jock MacDonald at the Banff school of fine arts in 1945 and later in 1947 with Hans Hofmann in Provincetown, R.I. In 1952, she organized the Canadian Abstract Exhibition and exhibited at the 1953 Abstracts at Home exhibition at Simpson's which lead to the formation of the Painters Eleven.

"Painting is like life itself: you learn as you go along, what to select, what to leave out -- this is very important, what goes with what, how to get interest and excitement with unity and balance, how to take the bad days with the good and last but not least how to enjoy and learn at the same time."

We focus on previous auction data, not primary market sales. Our data may be incomplete or slightly inaccurate. Although we have comprehensive historical data on each piece, artist, their work, and their series drastically differ based on the artistic content, condition of the piece, colouring, methods, and many other factors. We therefore cannot guarantee that we, ArtVenture, can appraise or give you an exact representation of the future price and performance of the artwork and recommend you not to put undue reliance on this data.
