1,200 Canadiana treasures acquired
This is big news for Canadian art, treasure and history lovers. I first saw it on CBC Monday night, and The Province ran a story about it:
Treasure trove of Candiana repatriated from England
It took two years of negotiations by Library and Archives Canada, the National Gallery of Canada and the Canada Museum of Civilization. The collection of 1,200 artworks, artifacts and historical documents is from the estate of the late Peter Winkworth of Montreal.
Canada Museum of Civilization in Gatineau, Quebec. The museum is located across the river from Ottawa.
