I just read this interesting story from the CBC where they asked three Canadian auction houses to choose a
handful of artworks from this Fall's auction season and explain why each of the 16 pieces should be worthy of attention. The resulting paintings are not only symbols of great Canadian art but also act as visual records of Canadian history.

One of the 16 artworks chosen: Paul-Émile Borduas, Chatterie, 1957
