Abstract (English)

Historical and contemporary artworks are divided into six sections: the first two respectively feature Mi’kmaq and British art from the time of Halifax’s foundation in 1749; the rest mark intervals of approximately 50 years, from the early 19th century to the late 20th. List of works. 37 bibl. ref.
