About Stamp

For Christmas 1974, the Canada Post Office will issue four stamps featuring paintings by Canadian artists which evoke the spirit and feeling of the Christmas season in Canada: "Nativité" by Jean Paul Lemieux, "Skaters in Hull" by Henri Masson, "The Ice Cone, Montmorency Falls" by Robert C. Todd and "Village in the Laurentian Mountains" by Clarence A. Gagnon. Robert C. Todd was born in 1809 at Berwick-on-Tweed, Great Britain. He emigrated to Quebec in 1834 and began work as a "house, sign, carriage and ornamental painter", a profession that he had previously pursued in London and Edinburgh. Todd lived in Quebec City until 1853 and taught for a while at Le Seminaire de Quebec. From 1854 to 1865, he lived in Toronto working as a decorative artist and mural painter. His best known and most appealing works are scenes of gentlemen racing their tandem teams or single horses against a background of the Montmorency Falls Ice Cone covered with merrymakers. These were a series of horse portraits commissioned by Quebec gentlemen who wanted their favourite blue-bloods pictured in a pleasant setting. "The Ice Cone, Montmorency Falls" is one of these paintings and is reproduced courtesy of the National Gallery of Canada.


Based on a painting by Robert Clow Todd Designed by Wallis & Matanovic
