Erasmus Amess

This watercolour self-portrait of Fred Amess was created by Amess to hold a folio of original issues of the The Savary Pudding, a broadside created by Vancouver School of Art summer students on Savary Island. The calligraphy notes that it was given at Christmas 1944 to Grace Melvin, who is pictured in many of the paintings and cartoons.
