Maurice Galbraith Cullen's wintry image of Montreal

Heads down, horses wait with empty sleighs on a Montreal street. Snow falls on the scene, blurring the image of St. James's Cathedral in the background.

In 1918, while serving in the Canadian Forces, Galbraith came to the attention of Lord Beaverbrook, who arranged for him to be commissioned as an official war artist.

Belonging to the Beaverbrook Gallery, this painting was part of the recent Masterworks display at the Audain.
