Geoffrey Rock was a highly talented Canadian artist who came here from Great Britain. He had been a student of Sir James Gunn R.A., a Scottish artist of distinction for his fine portraiture. This apprenticeship by Rock explains his ability to create an illusion of realism with an economy of brush work. Rock spent a large part of his Canadian career living in Vancouver.1of 4
