Hanging Fred and a few others
A book by Nick Fonda
Painters of the Eastern Townships
Frederick Coburn (1871-1960) was arguably Canada’s best=known painter at the peak of his career. Nick Fonda revisits Coburn’s work providing charming new insight into the painter and his surroundings. His method includes casting an inquisitive gaze on other accomplished artists who have followed quite unusual paths as they responded to the same muse that moved Coburn a century ago, the Eastern Townships. These include Minnie Gill, Denis Palmer, Mary Martin, Stuart Main, Pauline Boudreau, France Jadouin and Keven Sonmor.
