On display in the Sigmund Samuel Gallery of Canada's Wilson Canadian Heritage Exhibition Room, this exhibition examines how three 19th century women artists addressed and articulated their own Canadian experiences. The works of artists Anna Jameson, Susanna Moodie, and Alice Killaly are augmented by those of Ruth Abernethy, a contemporary artist interpreting the role of women in Canada’s 19th century settler society. All objects are from the ROM's Canadiana collections.
