HOMER RANSFORD WATSON, O.S.A., P.R.C.A.
Private Collection, Montreal
Known as the Canadian Constable, Watson’s career is a roster of high achievement. Recognized both in Canada and abroad, his reputation escalated after Pioneer Mill was exhibited in 1880 with the R.C.A. and purchased for the collection of Queen Victoria.
Watson served as the first President of the Canadian Art Club and President of the Royal Canadian Academy. His international reputation was solidified by one-man exhibitions in London and New York.
