Ernst Friedrich Lindner was an Austrian-born Canadian painter. He moved to Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, in 1926, where he became a self-taught commercial artist. He was soon recognized locally and then nationally.
Lindner is known for his many watercolors inspired by the natural beauty of the wooded country around his summer home at Emma Lake, Saskatchewan. He also made etchings, lithographs, linocuts and wood block prints. Lindner has been called a Late Modernist and also a Magic Realist.
Lindner’s work was widely exhibited in Canada and was also shown at the Canada House Gallery in London, England, and the Canadian Cultural centers in Paris and Brussels. His work is held in many important public and private collections such as the National Gallery of Canada, the Glenbow Museum in Calgary and the Winnipeg Art Gallery.
