Another delight of the Gallery is the Croscop Room, located in the same side gallery I left off with in yesterday's post. A parlour in the home of the Nova Scotian Croscop family, it was painted by an unknown person around 1845, the walls of the room serving as mural space. The room is now preserved here.
The walls are a work of art in and of themselves, with windows opening onto the next side gallery beyond.
A look back into the main gallery space we departed to come into the side gallery.
In a case in the heart of this room are items coming from First Nations artists.
For today we'll leave off with this one. Paul Kane painted Fort McGarry and St. Boniface between 1851-56. Today this location is Winnipeg, Manitoba.
