RS24 Image Gallery Introduction

We are dependent on artists to provide us with the depictions of the province before the time of cameras. The images in the RS24 gallery represent how artists and lithographers, people like William Henry Bartlett and Saint John born Lady Mary (Heaviside) Love, depicted the rapidly changing face of the province. These images also reflect many of the issues and conditions legislators faced in guiding the province through its first 50 years and some of those key individuals are also represented in the gallery. The most comprehensive reference works on such artists are Paul A. Hachey The New Brunswick Landscape Print, 1760-1880 (MC80-470) and R.A. Tweedie, Fred Cogswell, & W.S. McNutt Arts in New Brunswick (MC80-392).
