The Prime Minister Series was completed between 1977 and 1984, in which William Ronald (1926-1998) demonstrates, with both his life and paintings, “that Canadians - prime ministers and artists alike - are a intensely interesting lot if we just put down our preconceptions and look at them without flinching”.
