These paintings are portraits of the wives of Governor-Generals of Canada, who during the last century came to a brave new world from the Courts of Old England. Many of them have played important roles in the upbuilding of Canada. All have upheld the traditions of the Royal House, sharing with their husbands viceregal status and presiding with grace and dignity in the capital of Canada.”
