ERNEST LINDNER STUDIO




ERNEST LINDNER STUDIO

Attracted to Fairy Island’s pristine setting, nationally-renowned artist Ernest Lindner chose this spot, now called Lindner Point, to build his summer home and studio in 1935. The studio is constructed from spruce trees cut on the site and incorporates a large corner window offering a panoramic view of the boreal forest. Many of Lindner’s best-known works feature the distinctive landscape of Fairy Island and Emma Lake, and are held in numerous public and private collections, including the National Gallery of Canada. In 1961, at the age of 65, Lindner sold his island studio to the University of Saskatchewan. According to Wikipedia, Ernest Lindner specialized in painting watercolors of natural woodlands. He originally arrived in Saskatoon from Austria with his parents in 1926.
