Close Looking: Canadian Wild Flowers

Join Amy Furness, Rosamond Ivey Special Collections Archivist and Head, Library & Archives, as she discusses the AGO’s early editions of Catharine Parr Traill’s Canadian Wild Flowers (1868 and following) illustrated by Agnes Fitzgibbon. We will take a close look at some of the book’s remarkable illustrations and their history of production, and explore what it means to include illustrated books in an art museum collection.
