  Biography  
   
 
Holdstock was born in 1820 at Bath, England (but a granddaughter believed he was born in 819 in Sussex, England). He was educated at Oxford University. In 1850 he came to Montreal where he taught drawing at the Government National School on Bonsecours Street and to wealthy Montrealers. Later he stopped teaching in order to spend full time on his painting. He mainly painted views of Eastern Canada - especially the Thousand Islands, the Ottawa River and the Laurentians - in watercolor and pastel. Many of his works were postcard size, which he then mailed to friends. Holdstock died in Montreal in 1901.
