“I go to Europe in order to paint the scenes where so many of our gallant Canadians have fought and died, because this can be only done successfully before the reconstruction of France and Belgium has really started... there is no doubt about the magnificent ability of our fighting men and I fairly ache to get to the scene of their heroic exploits.”
[Mary Riter Hamilton, interview with Anne Anderson Perry,
Western Women's Weekly, February 1, 1919]
