Jack Sudlow

Jack Sudlow (September 5, 1907July 23, 1993) was a Canadian painter in the Impressionist style.


Born to William and Lena Sudlow who immigrated to Quebec from Manchester, England in 1904. His father's brother, Sam, was also an artist who emigrated to Australia. Named after his uncle Jack who was killed when the Germans dropped a bomb on Hyde, England. At age 3, moved with his parents to Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

At age 16, when his father became ill, Sudlow dropped out of school to help support his parents and two sisters. He got work as an architectural draftsman, drawing plans and designing buildings. His only formal training came at night school in Toronto. Sudlow wanted to pursue a sole career as an artist, but felt at the time that he could not support his wife and two daughters with what he could make. Therefore, architectural drafting remained his career until his retirement.


Throughout his life, Sudlow was best known for his portraiture. His works are compared to the portraits painted by Monet, using the same dabbing technique to create the images. "The Violinist" hangs in the Hilo Art Museum in Hilo, Hawaii [As listed on the museum's website, http://www.HiloArtMuseum.org] . His best-known work entitled "Sour Puss" hangs in his oldest daughter's home in Ohio. Sudlow also created landscape pieces, most of which are in private collections.

Though not known for his photography, Sudlow had a passion for it. He built his own enlarger, developing his prints at his private studio. An original Sudlow photograph is considered very rare.Fact|date=August 2008
