“The well-known Academician, Charles Jefferys of Toronto, is also represented. Known to school children all over Canada for his reproductions in the school books, in ‘It’s a Cold World’ he has turned to a different field. A shivering jester dressed in old world motley stands uncomfortably in the wintry blast. He has also a water color and a pen and ink sketch.”
“Art Gallery scene of R.C.A. exhibition…” In Montreal Gazette, Nov. 23, 1935, p. 19.
“Charles W. Jefferys, R.C.A., tries a departure in subject in his watercolor ‘The Dark Huntsman’ and is amusingly decorative in ‘It’s a Cold World’ –a jester in a snowy landscape.”
