Biography / Administrative history

Artist, illustrator and curator, Clare Bice was born in Durham, Ontario, in 1909 and raised in nearby London. Bice studied at the University of Western Ontario (B.A., 1928) and then at the Art Students' League and Grand Central School of Art in New York (1930-32). His success as a writer and illustrator of children's books began with the publication of "Jory's Cove" in 1941 and followed with four more children's books. He worked as curator of the Williams Memorial Art Gallery and Museum from 1940 to 1972 (now the London Regional Art and Historical Museums) and was a member of the Ontario Society of Artists. Bice became well known as a landscape painter and as a portrait and figure artist. He exhibited his work widely, wrote articles on art, and taught at the Doan School of Art and at various Canadian universities during summer sessions.
