By New York Artist Adam Miller

A large neorealist fresco, titled Quebec, by New York artist Adam Miller, will be exhibited in the Atrium of the McCord Museum.

The painting was commissioned by Montreal entrepreneur Salvatore Guerrera, founder and President of SAJO, for Canada’s 150th anniversary. Quebec was inspired by The Death of General Wolfe, dated 1770, a painting by Anglo-American artist Benjamin West which illustrates the famous Battle of Quebec.

Reminiscent of the academic style of classical 19th-century painters, Miller’s work reinterprets Wolfe’s painting with over one hundred historical, social and political figures from the province.
