p.6 - “Charles William Jefferys (pp. 21 and 23), after an apprenticeship at illustration, was the first Canadian to paint the rolling prairie lands of the west, where the red wheat waves in the summer breeze as far as the eye can reach, round homesteads which lie like oases in a desert of gold, and the spring flowers surpass all imagination. This is, however, not the artist’s only achievement, for the National Gallery acquired an exquisitely truthful study of winter snows called Winter Afternoon (p. 21), and more recently still a tenderly intimate water-colour of willows fluttering above a brawling stream.”
