Prairie Landscapes through the art of Lionel LeMoine FitzGerald
Western Canadian painter Lionel LeMoine FitzGerald (1890–1956) grew up on the Canadian prairie in relative isolation from the artistic hub of central Canada, where he sought to capture the quintessential look of the prairies and their extraordinary quality of light. In this guide FitzGerald’s artworks are the starting point for investigations into Western Canadian landscapes as they relate to science, art, and history.
