Lawrence Arthur Colley Panton was born in 1894 in England and immigrated to Canada at the age of seventeen. He served in the Canadian Army during the First World War, and upon returning home, took up art classes at the Ontario College of Art as well as the Central Technical School in Toronto. He held the position of principal at the Ontario College of Art and Design from 1951 to 1954.

Panton was active in a number of organizations, including the Ontario Society of Artists (President–1931–1937), the Canadian Society of Painter-Etchers and Engravers, the Canadian Group of Painters, The Royal Canadian Academy and the Arts and Letters Club (President–1953–1954).

The Art Gallery of Ontario held a memorial exhibition in 1955. Hart House at the University of Toronto held a retrospective of forty-three works in 1974, and another retrospective exhibit and catalogue titled Towards a Lyrical Abstraction was held at the Art Gallery of Ontario in 1991.
