|BRITISH COLUMBIA ARTISTS|
These postcards were issued under the title
British Columbia Artist Series. None of the cards in the series has
a publication date, although information printed on some of them
gives information on exhibitions in the 1940s. The original postcards
are 3.25" high by 5.5" wide.|
Artists represented in the series include Emily Carr, Bess Harris, Ronald Jackson, J.W.G. Macdonald, Marion Morham, J. Delisle Parker, Paul Rand, Charles H. Scott, Mildred Valley Thornton, and W.P. Weston. There may well be more cards in the series.
The postcards are mentioned in the Vancouver Art Gallery Bulletin,
Vol. 12, No. 1, September 1944:
The Editor has a collection of 10 of these cards, per illustrations below (lacking Nan Cheney and Lawren Harris cards), but does not know if additional artworks were published, or additional artists included in the series. It took the Editor until 2013 to find the information noted above in the art gallery bulletin (by accident), until then no-one could say who published the cards.
