Thomas Mower Martin was a mostly self-taught painter born in England, who came to Canada in 1962. He settled in Toronto in 1880 and was selected as a member of the “Railway Painters”, a group of painters employed by the Canadian Pacific Railway to document the construction of the railroad through the Canadian Rockies. Mount Abbott stands over Marion Lake, a popular hiking destination, in the Selkirk Range of Glacier National Park, British Columbia.
