Painters in a New LandИздательство:
New York Graphic SocietyГод:
Here is the panorama of a new land — early forts, towns, and villages, portraits and social scenes — as depicted in more than two hundred rare sketches and watercolours from eighteenth- and nineteenth-century Canada. The paintings and drawings, drawn from surviving visual records, include works by artists ranging from lady amateurs and military officers to professionals such as William Armstrong and Lucius O'Brien.
Complementary descriptions from contemporary travel literature, diaries and letters, and background essays by Michael Bell present a vivid picture of frontier life, as seen by settlers and travelers of the time.
