Banting, Sir Frederick Grant

Sir Frederick Grant Banting is greatly known as the co-discoverer of insulin. He won the Nobel prize for Medicine, with Dr. Charles Best and Dr. J.J.R. MacLeod in 1923. Later, he was knighted in 1934. He was born in 1891 in Alliston, Ontario, and Banting Historical House in London, Ontario is named in his honour.
Banting’s lesser known artistic career began in 1920, when he began exhibiting his work with the Hart House Sketch Club in 1925. He later met A.Y. Jackson, who wished to purchase a painting, with whom he shared similar war experiences and a shared passion for painting Canadian landscapes. At the same time, he met Lawren Harris, who nominated him in the Arts and Letters Club in 1926. Banting became good friends and sketching partners with members of the Group of Seven. He vowed to paint full time, and retire from medical research at the age of 50. Unfortunately, he passed away in a tragic air crash while serving with the Canadian National Defence Associate Committee on Aviation Medical Research in 1941.
