ART – Something special to enjoy … 30 WOODCUTS FROM 1882

The book Picturesque Canada, the Country as it Was and Is was published in Toronto in 1882. Each chapter was by a different author, and the chapter about New Brunswick was by Charles G.D. Roberts. The overall editor was George Monro Grant. The book was illustrated with woodcuts by various artists whose work was supervised by Lucius Richard O’Brien who was an artist himself and, at the time, was President of the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts. Following is a collection of images from that work. Compiled by John Wood and edited by Art MacKay.
