Mount St. Éloi
The Mount St. Éloi region, in Belgium, was thoroughly ravaged during battles of the First World War. After the war, the artist Mary Riter Hamilton went to Europe to paint the battlefields where Canadians had served most brilliantly. This painting of Mount St. Éloi shows the devastation that pervaded the region, even in 1919.
