Albert Jacques Franck -
While this artist has painted for many years in Canada, he is just now beginning to achieve the international renown which he deserves, He (sic) is a painter of cityscapes and street scenes but here the distinction stops. His canvases show us the charm of back streets of a vanishing city that most of us have chosen to ignore.
A painter of great historical importance, as one day his paintings of deteriorating slums and crumbling houses is all we will have left of this period.
He is in many important public and private collections throughout the world.
