Les deux plages, Parame et St. Malo by Clarence Gagnon

When  Lord Beaverbrook acquired this large and lovely painting from the widow of the beloved French Canadian artist Clarence Gagnon, he promised her it would "hold the place of importance" to which it was "entitled by the genius of the artist."

Painted in 1909, it portrays the dress and customs of the times, including the quaint wheeled cabins people used to don their bathing costumes.
