Historical noteWilliam Perehudoff, painter (b at Langham, Sask 1919). Though he has lived most of his adult life in Saskatoon, he studied art at the Colorado Springs Fine Art Center (1948-49), and with French Cubist Amédée Ozenfant in New York. He married Dorothy Knowles in 1952 and they returned to western Canada, where he earned his living as a commercial artist. He has exhibited widely in Canada, the US and Europe, and is regarded by many as the heir to Jack Bush as Canada's most important colour field painter. In 1999 he was made a Member of the Order of Canada.
