Born in Innsbruck, Austria, in 1921, Ingeborg Mohr studied at the University of Breslau, the School of Fine Arts in Linz, and the School of fine Arts in Graz, Austria. With her husband, philologist Hans Mohr, and their three small children, Ingeborg immigrated to Canada in 1954. The family spent a year living in rural Saskatchewan, where Ingeborg was inspired to create watercolour landscapes that reflected the beauty of the prairie skies, before settling in Toronto, where they lived for twenty-three years. Once in Toronto, inspired by the local contemporary art scene, Ingeborg made the transition from representational painting to abstract expressionism, first exploring this freedom from the object through the batik medium, and later with oil on paper and canvas. She had a prolific career that spanned four decades. Her work was shown in many solo and group exhibitions throughout Canada, the United States and Austria. Ingeborg was elected to the Ontario Society of Artists in 1975 and to the Royal Canadian Academy in 1980. Her work is held in numerous private collections throughout Canada, the United States and Europe.
