Description:
Sir Frederick Grant Banting 1891 - 1941 Canadian The Lab oil on board on verso signed, titled, dated Feb. 1925 and inscribed "Winter" / "2 00 AM" / "93" 9 7/8 x 13 5/8 in 25.1 x 34.6cm Provenance: Acquired directly from the Artist by Sadie Gairns, Toronto Acquired as a gift from the above by Jean Orr (née Deas), Toronto By descent to the present Private Collection, Toronto Exhibited: Hart House, University of Toronto, Exhibition of Paintings by the Late Sir Frederick Banting, February 13 - March 1, 1943 Famous for his discovery of insulin in 1921, Sir Frederick Banting was also a keen artist, and this remarkable painting represents the synthesis of those two lives. During the same period as his diabetes research, Banting met Lawren Harris and A.Y. Jackson, and joined Toronto’s Arts and Letters Club, which cultivated his interest in painting. Here Banting depicts the laboratory where he and Charles Best made their discovery, located then at the University of Toronto. The work was painted in situ, and Banting notes on the frame it was executed on a late winter’s night in February of 1925. Less than two years earlier, he, along with Best, had been awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine. The original owner of this exceptional piece of Canadian history was Sadie Gairns, one of Banting’s laboratory assistants. Later, it was gifted to her close friend and fellow Banting lab assistant Jean Orr. The Buyer’s Premium for this Lot will be donated by Heffel to the Banting & Best Diabetes Centre, an extra-departmental unit of the Faculty of Medicine, University of Toronto, whose primary objective is advancing diabetes research, education and patient care.

Description:
FREDERICK GRANT BANTING GEORGIAN BAY oil on panel signed with initials; titled on the reverse 8.25 ins x 10.5 ins; 21 cms x 26.7 cms Provenance: Private Collection, Belleville (by descent) Literature: Stephen Eaton Hume, Frederick Banting: Hero, Healer, Artist , XYZ Publishing, Montreal, 2001, page 123. Frederick Banting is a heroic figure in Canadian history, a giant in the field of medical discovery. His research on insulin would have a vital, life-saving impact on generations of people diagnosed with diabetes. Banting also served bravely in the First World War, treating soldiers injured both by conventional weapons as well as those affected by poison gas attacks. Banting was wounded in 1918 and awarded the Military Cross "for bravery and determination under fire". Banting also worked at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto and, for a brief period, had a private practice in London, Ontario. For his contribution to the discovery of insulin, Banting was awarded the Nobel Prize in Medicine - the first Canadian to win recognition from this august body - and was knighted in 1934. While such accomplishments would have sufficed to satisfy any other run-of-the-mill Renaissance man or woman, Banting also pursued the art of painting which would become a great passion and at which he became exceptionally accomplished. While he would never in his lifetime gain the reputation from painting that he achieved in the world of medical research, Stephen Hume asserts that \“By the 1920s Banting had become one of Canada\’s best known amateur painters.\” Hume\’s use of \“amateur\” to describe the artist\’s work was not pejorative rather it is based on the fact that Banting could never support himself on the proceeds he made from the sporadic sales of his paintings. Most were kept by him or given away to family and friends. This work has remained in the family until now.
