Arthur Szyk lithograph

Object | Accession Number: 2002.113.3.2

The multi-colored lithograph represents Arthur Szyk's conception of the entire history of the Dominion of Canada. The Arms of Canada are centered at the top representing Canada's British founders through the blazons of Scotland, England, and Ireland, and a fleur-de-lis at the top left represents Canada's French heritage. The arms of all of the Canadian provinces are depicted along the sides of the print as well as portraits of British General James Wolfe and French General Marquis de Montcalm. A maple leaf, Canada's national emblem, is drawn under depictions of a Native Indian, a Mountie, and two beavers.
