David Alexander Colville, "Family and Rainstorm", 1955 National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa, Ontario
The striking beauty and diversity of the face of Canada have always been a source of inspiration to its artists. To celebrate Canada Day, Canada Post Corporation presents a miniature sheet of twelve paintings, each one an artist's interpretation of a scene from the ten provinces and two territories. "Family and Rainstorm," by Alex Colville, captures the capricious weather of the seabound coast of Nova Scotia. This oil painting is owned by the National Gallery. The sheet layout of all twelve stamps was arranged to enhance each individual stamp. Both the layout and the typography are the work of Jean Morin and Pierre Sasseville of Montreal.
