Caroline Dukes

R.C.A.
Winnipeg (Manitoba)
[Ujpest (Hongrie), 1929 - Winnipeg, 2003]


Caroline Dukes was born in Ujpest, Hungary in 1929 and lived under the post war communist regime. She began her training in Budapest, studying sculpture with Sigiesmund de Strobl at the Academy of Fine Arts. Caroline and her husband Alfred, moved to Canada in 1956, after many challenging years of war in Europe. During this time Caroline decided to focus more on her family than her art practice. The couple lived in Toronto for 9 years where they had two sons. At that point, Alfred’s job led the family to Winnipeg, Manitoba.

In 1968, Caroline entered the University of Manitoba’s Fine Arts program. She studied under artist Ivan Eyre, which influenced her work greatly, and graduated with honours in 1972. Dukes began to show her work in various group shows in Winnipeg, which lead to exhibitions across Canada and abroad, including shows in Jerusalem, Munich and Barcelona. Her work is represented in major collections world-wide including the Budapest Museum of Fine Art, Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, Canada Council Art Bank, Manitoba Arts Council Art Bank, The Bronfman Collection and the Princess Anne Collection.

In 1994, Caroline was elected to the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts.


Le projet d’artistes de Winnipeg du CACC a été réalisé grâce au soutien généreux de la Winnipeg Foundation, complémenté au niveau de la recherche par le Programme de subventions destinées au patrimoine de Culture, Patrimoine et Tourisme Manitoba.
