Gallery Talk: Stories between Two Solitudes with Chris Finn

Discover the interrelationship of English and French-Canadian cultural narratives illustrated by two major historical Canadian artists Clarence Gagnon and Franklin Carmichael. Gagnon’s original colour illustrations are immortalized in Louis Hemon’s iconic novel Maria Chapdelaine. Franklin Carmichael’s graphic work in Grace Campbell’s novel Thorn-apple Tree animates the narrative and “does for the Scottish settlers in Glengarry what Maria Chapdelaine did for the habitant.”
