About the Artist

Regina Seiden, painter (born 4 July 1897 in Rigaud, QC; died 11 January 1991 in Montréal, QC). Like other Montréal artists such as Prudence Heward, Regina Seiden specialized in portraits of women, including representations of immigrants to Canada. Seiden stopped painting soon after her marriage to German-Jewish painter Eric Goldberg (1890–1969) to dedicate herself to their relationship and Goldberg’s career. After Goldberg died, Seiden started to paint again but never regained the momentum of her early years. Despite her brief career, Regina Seiden is now recognized as an important Montréal artist of the early 20th century who was closely associated with the Beaver Hall Group. The Canadian Encyclopedia
