MR. H. J. de Forest SHOWS PICTURES OF BRITISH COLUMBIA SCENERY IN ST. JOHN
The following paragraph, taken from the St. John Globe, of August 3rd date, will be interesting to the art circles in British Columbia, where Mr. H. J. de Forest has long been an outstanding figure:—
"A visitor to St. John, after an absence of twenty-years, is H. J. de Forest, the distinguished landscape artist, who now makes his home in Vancouver. Born in this city sixty-five years ago, Mr. de Forest returned here some twenty-five years ago with the idea of remaining, but St. John did not offer a profitable opening, and some twenty years ago he took up his residence in Vancouver. In the beautiful mountain scenery of the Pacific Province he found inspiration and in the wealth of the new country ,with its thousands of tourists, he found business opportunities which are the essential of success in art as in everything else. Mr. de Forest is now the guest of his cousin, Fred Z. Fowler, Charlotte street, after a brief visit to relatives in other parts of the province. That St. John friends and others interested may have the opportunity to see some of his work, Mr. de Forest has place on exhibition a collection of fifteen or more pictures, all but one of western scenery — the mountains, lakes and inlets of British Columbia."
