You Never Know Who's Canadian

Maurice Prendergast
, Landscape with Figures, 1921, The Corcoran Gallery of Art

I am currently getting ready to make a trip up to Nova Scotia and Québec and in looking-up Canadian artists I discovered that one of my favorites, Maurice Prendergast was born in St. John, Newfoundland. His family eventually settled in Boston and he was part of the Ashcan School but usually with a lighter tone, a brighter palette, and a more abstract hand.
