Joan Lowndes


Born in England, Joan Lowndes immigrated to Canada with her parents in 1919.

She was educated at the University of British Columbia and the Sorbonne. While working as a translator for the American Office of War Information she became interested in modern art. She worked as a freelance broadcaster for the C.B.C. in the 1940s and 1950s. Shortly afterwards she began her career as an art critic and over the next thirty years became widely involved in art criticism while working for the Vancouver Sun and the Vancouver Province.

Joan died in Vancouver in July 2001.
