Oscar Cahén was one of Canada's most inventive and influential artists—celebrated across the country for his colourful magazine covers and innovative paintings. When his life was tragically cut short however, almost all of his work disappeared from public view, and hasn’t been seen since. Now, after more than 60 years in storage, some of Oscar’s greatest paintings are about to get their moment in the spotlight again—along with his masterpiece—'The Warrior.’
