June-Ray Pulford, the widow of the late Edward (Ted) B. Pulford
(1914-1994), recently donated 30 of her husbands paintings
to the Sir Wilfred Grenfell Art Gallery. Here, Principal Adrian
Fowler (L) and Dr. Roy Hostetter, head, Fine Arts, present two
of the paintings: Curling (left) and Bottle Cove. The watercolours,
which depict scenes of western Newfoundland and the Bay of Islands,
will be added to the other Pulford works in the art gallery collection.
Dr. Pulford taught visual art at Mount Allison University for
30 years, during which time he helped to establish the national
reputation of the school of fine arts. Apart from his own respected
career as one of Canadas finest realist painters, Dr. Pulford
guided the development of hundreds of students, including Mary
West Pratt, Christopher Pratt, Tom Forrestall, and Corner Brook
artists Aileen Woolridge and Michael Coyne. Dr. Pulford was awarded
an honorary doctorate from Sir Wilfred Grenfell College in 1985.

illustration of The Maids of Elfen-Mere, engraved on wood by
Dalziel, first appeared in Allinghams The Music-Master
(1855). Rossetti published only 10 book illustrations in four
volumes, but they ushered in a provocative and intense style
of illustration, especially in 19th-century poetry. Pictures
