History Biographical
Moe Reinblatt was born in Montreal in 1917 to parents who immigrated from Bessarabia. While attending Baron Byng High School Reinblatt studied art under Anne Savage. He continued his art education for seven years in the studio of Alexandre Bercovitch, where he developed a deep appreciation for impressionism and post-impressionism, as well as at the Montreal Museum's School of Fine Arts and Design. In 1942 Reinblatt joined the R.C.A.F. as an airframe mechanic. He continued to paint in his spare time depicting the workers behind the war effort rather than soldiers in combat. He showed his wartime work at an exhibition at the Art Association of Montreal where he took first place for his portrait of 'Cpl. Seagar (Rigger)' and fourth prize for his drawing 'Daily Inspection.' As a result of these awards, he was appointed official war artist in August of 1944, commissioned with the rank of Flying Officer, and served overseas recording scenes around stations handling Mosquito and Halifax aircraft. (...) In 1945 Reinblatt joined the staff of the Montreal Museum's School of Fine Arts and Design where he taught drawing and graphic art. (...) "Moe celebrated everything he painted," said Eudice Garmaise, who shared studio space with Reinblatt for 30 years. "He celebrated flowers, the landscape, people, humanity."(...) Throughout his lifetime, Reinblatt won many prestigious awards for his work. He had numerous solo and group shows throughout his lifetime. (...) His work is represented in many important public and private collections including the National Gallery of Canada and the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts. He died in Montreal in 1979.
