Title
Three Montreal Monuments: An Expression of Nationalism
Abstract
Montreal in the years between 1895 and 1920 produced the greatest concentration of public sculptures in Canada. The author argues that these monuments were a reflection of the country's growing Canadian nationalism. Most of the monuments were the work of three Quebec-born sculptors -- George Hill, Philippe Hébert and Alfred Laliberté. The author focuses on Hill's monument to Sir George-Etienne Cartier, Hébert's monument to De Maisonneuve, and Laliberté's monument to Dollard des Ormeaux.
