Goodridge Roberts settled in Montreal in 1936 and distinguished himself amongst Contemporary Arts Society members, who considered him, like John Lyman, as one of the most gifted of their number. In 1939, the year he painted this Interior, he was, along with Eric Goldberg and Louis Muhlstock, a member of the jury that selected the works for the Society’s first exhibition. In that same year, he also showed his watercolours at the Art Association of Montreal (now the MMFA), which then made its first acquisition of a Roberts work, a Laurentian landscape.
