LUCIUS RICHARD O'BRIEN, O.S.A., P.R.C.A.
Private Collection, Toronto
“The Woods”, Shanty Bay, Lake Simcoe was the ancestral home of Lucius O’Brien (1832-1899), built by his father, Col. E.G. O’Brien in 1832 and sadly burnt to the ground in 1885.
According to a label on the reverse of this work, written by a family member, “this watercolour of “The Woods” was part of the furnishings of the O’Brien home on Sherbourne St., Toronto.”
