To document, research, conserve and promote the work of Oscar Cahén, through clearly prescribed and rigorously accountable resources.


Oscar Cahén will be, by every measure, acknowledged within the top tier of Canadian artists. Cahén's contribution to painting, drawing and illustration will be significantly advanced through outstanding management, scholarship, curatorial direction, exhibitions, and best-practice follow-through. 



The objective of this website is to facilitate an appreciation of Oscar Cahén's work, by providing access to The Cahén Archives and our resources.


Development of the Oscar Cahén catalogue raisonné began in 2003, and is a continuing work in progress.
