Description

In an era dominated by disposable objects, contemporary home decorating has had little room for historically significant funriture. In Celebrating Canada, antiques expert Peter Baker illustrates and discusses a collection of historical Canadian antiques and folk art, each with a story to tell. Drawing from a private collection carefully assembled over the past four decades, Baker provides a tour through the past by way of objects from the early days of French settlement to the inspired creativity of late-twentieth-century folk artists. Throughout the richly illustrated pages, pieces from the collection are profiled not only to showcase their artistic merit, but also to define a significant event or period in Canada’s development as a nation. This beautiful, accessible volume honours the 150th anniversary of Canadian confederation and 375 years of settlement in Montreal. Showcasing Canada’s diverse material culture and heritage, Celebrating Canada rekindles appreciation for historical objects that give a unique identity to each home.
