Trees of Canada Prints

  Printed circa 1951 for the Pulp & Paper Association of Canada, the set of 6 were silkscreened by the Sampson-Matthews Co., this is the large format second series....2000 prints were ordered by the National Gallery for sale in their gift shops.

   These huge prints are in period frames and the one pictured below was done by Thoreau MacDonald. It's title is - 'Black Spruce', the scene was in Algonquin Park, 30" x 40"...

 


. Done by Charles Comfort in 1950, titled Balsam Fir...it was not liked by the National Galley board.....they didn't like the scene shown....the encroachment of man into the forest...they described this one as 'Commercial Art'. Size is 30" by 40" and I feel it's the best of the run!
