Coming out of the ramp leading out of Lebreton Gallery, one wall is often used to display a given work of art for awhile. At the moment it is a set of four canvases depicting a single scene. I photographed from right to left. The Roads Of France was painted by C.R.W Nevinson in 1917, and each portion paints a single aspect of the approach to the front lines.
Here it is as a whole.
Across from them stands a recent addition to the Museum's collection, one with a lot of history. Canadian soldiers ended the First World War at Mons, Belgium. In August 1919, two 18 pounder field guns were presented to the citizens of Mons in friendship. It was said that this one was the last Canadian artillery gun to fire before the armistice. As a centennial tribute to the end of the war, Belgium gave this one back to the War Museum. I hope you've found this visit to the War Museum enlightening.
