I start out today with two final images from Lebreton Gallery.
The ramp that leads back up to the main entrance of the museum features large canvases of war art. This is The Taking Of Vimy Ridge, Easter Monday 1917, a 1919 painting by Richard Jack, showing the Canadian battle of the First World War.
Here we have two angles on one painting. Canada's Grand Armada 1914 is a 1919 painting by Frederick Challener, depicting the First Contingent of the Canadian Expeditionary Force sailing for Europe in the fall of that first year of the war.
World War Two brought a different kind of art, done by the pilots or their ground crews: nose cone art put onto fighters and bombers.
Battlefields Of Ypres is a 1920 painting by David Young Cameron, depicting the shattered battlefield near the Belgian city.
And this is No Man's Land, by Maurice Cullen, done around 1920. I will be concluding this series tomorrow.
