Tout a commencer sur les plaines d'Abraham avec cette image de l'Habitation construite par Samuel de Champlain en 1608 - par C. W. Jefferys (1869-1951). Mon grand, grand... pere Jean Houymet arrive en Nouvelle France le 6 juin 1659 abord du Saint Sacrifice d' Abraham et voit cette architype d'une nouvelle culture...

This is the image of Habitation, a structure build by Samuel de Champlain in 1608 - by C. W. Jefferys (1869-1951). My ancester, Jean Houymet arrived in New France on June 6th, 1659 on board of the Saint Sacrifice d'Abraham and see this architype of a new culture...
much need of work and creativity in this pictures...respect for excellence
Dragan, Thanks for the comment! C. W. Jefferys was a great painter and architectural drawing teacher in Toronto. He like to paint French-Canadian and First Nations historical events. I really like is work, since I'm French-Canadian architect and sometime I paint. This painting is valid for historical reference and the quality of the perspective is a window in the past.
Donna, Thanks for sharing! I was looking at your beautiful post at the time... Something is great about the artwork of Canadians...

Beautiful, did you paint this?
Hello Mary, Thanks for the comment! Look at the first comment I have your answer in english and french.
"Tout ça a commencé sur les plaines d'Abraham" Robert Charlebois. Il fait reference au milleux du 18e siècle mais pour moi tout a commencé sur les plaines en 1659, une cinquantaine d'années après l'arrivée de Samuel de Champlain.
