Art donation


Photo by Don Meiwald

June-Ray Pulford, the widow of the late Edward (Ted) B. Pulford (1914-1994), recently donated 30 of her husband’s 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 Canada’s 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.

Dante Gabriel Rossetti, from W. Allingham, Day and Night Songs; and the Music-Master (Bell and Daldy, 1860). Rossetti’s illustration of The Maids of Elfen-Mere, engraved on wood by Dalziel, first appeared in Allingham’s 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 and Patterns: Victorian Illustrated Books and Bindings from the Peattie Collection, an exhibition to mark the gift of thousands of rare Victorian books from the Roger and Marlene Peattie Collection to Memorial’s QE II Library, runs Jan. 12 to March 25, 2001, at the Art Gallery ofNewfoundlandand Labrador, located in theArts and
Culture Centre, Allandale Road. The exhibition will focus on four groups of Victorian books: colour-printed books from the 1840s to the beginning of the 20th century; books and magazines with wood-engraved illustrations; examples of the “art of the book” movement; and cloth bindings, most of them signed or attributed to one of the known book cover artists. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Sunday, noon to 5 p.m. and Friday from 7-10 p.m.
