Fresh-to-the-market

Important Anthony Flower (1792 – 1875) – 1835 Watercolour – 8 by 10 ¼ inches

Titled: Dr. William Little Copper

Detailed information au verso of its time being exhibited at the Beaverbrook Art Gallery – Fredericton 

Anthony Flower was born in England in 1792 and came to the New World in 1817 on his father’s ship. By the spring of 1818, he was the owner of farmland on the banks of the Washademoak Lake at MacDonald's Corner, Queens County, New Brunswick. He is regarded as one of the region's earliest artists.

 

In 2006, an exhibition of his works, some 200 in all, was exhibited at the Beaverbrook Art Gallery and subsequently traveled to other venues in Atlantic Canada. His works included landscapes of his own and neighbouring farms, and portraits of family members. As one of the rare regional artists to emerge from nineteenth century New Brunswick, his work “opens a window on a time and place now gone.”

Princess Helene was replaced in April 27, 1963 by the SS Princess of Acadia, formerly the CPR’s British Columbia ferry Princess of Nanaimo.

Iconic Mid-Century “Wassily” seamless club chair

Chair & Designer History:

The Wassily Chair, also known as the Model B3 chair, was designed by Marcel Breuer in 1925-1926 while he was the head of the cabinet-making workshop at the Bauhaus, in Dessau, Germany. A champion of the modern movement and protégé of Bauhaus founder Walter Gropius, Marcel Breuer is equally celebrated for his achievements in architecture and furniture. Breuer was an outstanding student and subsequently a master carpenter at the Bauhaus in the early 1920s. His entire body of work, both architecture and furniture, embodies the driving Bauhaus objective to reconcile art and industry. While at the Bauhaus, Breuer revolutionized the modern interior with his tubular-steel furniture collection — inspired by bicycle construction and fabricated using the techniques of local plumbers. His first designs, including the Wassily, remain among the most identifiable icons of the modern furniture movement.
