The School of Byng

Anne Savage was the inspiration for numerous well-known and successful artists such as Moe Reinblatt (BBHS ‘34),  William Allister (BBHS ‘36),  Alfred Pinsky (BBHS ‘38),  Sylvia Ary (BBHS ‘39), Mel Boyaner (BBHS ‘41),  Tobie Steinhouse (BBHS ‘42), Leah Sherman (BBHS ‘42), Rita Briansky (BBHS ‘42) and Ita Aber (BBHS ’49). Infused by the teachings of Anne Savage, Leah Sherman followed in her foot steps and became an art teacher at BBHS and later a co-founder together with Alfred Pinsky, of the art department at Sir George Williams College (now Concordia University.)  Sherman went on to inspire a new generation of artists at BBHS such as David Silverberg (BBHS ‘53), Marilyn Lightstone (BBHS  ’57),  and Seymour Segal (BBHS ’57). Savage herself, and through her students, has left a lasting mark on Canadian Art. She died in 1971.  Click below to see a selection of the work of the many artists who graduated from Baron Byng.
