Designed and printed in Ottawa, ON. by Claudia Gutierrez.
The Ottawa City Print by Raymond Biesinger. This is Ottawa on 7 May 1945, the day the Second World War ended in Europe.
Screenprinted in a 3rd edition of 111 copies by Séripop in March of 2014 at 24" square, two colours on white 12 pt Bristol paper. Signed and numbered on the back.
Included in the image: east of the Rideau Canal we have Rideau Hall, St. Brigid's Church, St. Anne's Catholic Church, Toller House, the old Soviet Embassy, Daly Building (demolished), not the Bytown Cinema (not built yet), Byward Market, St. Davis Eastern United Church, Panet House, Tabaret Hall and the University of Ottawa, Union Station, the Chateau Laurier. West of the Rideau Canal we have the House of Commons with East and West Block, Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, Langevin Block, St. Andrew's Church, the Home of Igor Gouzenko, Birkett House, the Duncannon, Campbell House, the Cartier Square Drill Hall, and the Canadian Museum of Nature. And of course, we have (across the Ottawa River) a bit of Hull.
$60.00This is Montreal on 27 April 1967, the day Expo 67 opened to the public, and it's one of a series of images I made between April of 2012 and November of 2014 showing my adopted home city (seen above), my old home town of Edmonton, and a selection of other Canadian cities. Consider it part of a getting-to-know-you exercise with the nation's architecture and history. Up top you can see a mix of Rachel and Mont Royal, at left the old Montreal Forum, at right Hochelaga, and at bottom the exposition grounds themselves.
$60.00This is Winnipeg on the 15th of May 1919, a day considered by many as the hottest moment during the Winnipeg General Strike, and it's one of a series of images Raymond Biesinger made between April of 2012 and November of 2014 showing a selection of Canadian cities. Consider it part of a getting-to-know-you exercise with the nation's architecture and history. You can imagine Main Street stretching up and down the print at its 2/3 mark, and note Winnipeg's beautiful old city hall (demolished in 1962) still stands left of the crowd and flag near the print's top.
