French Cross - Alex Colville

A young woman twists in the saddle of her mount, her attention caught by the intricate cross
silhouetted against the sky. Her horse plods on, indifferent both to the cross and the woman's
interest in it. This cross is a memoria l to the Acadian people who were expelled from Nova Scotia
in the mid eighteenth century. It stands at Grand Pr'e, on the shores of the Bay of Fundy,
a point according to local tradition from where many of the Acadians were shipped
away from their homes.

The painting draws a poignant contrast, for while the young woman's gaze forms a link
between the present and the past in human affairs, the natural world represented by the
horse and the landscape continues a rhythm unchanged by such concerns.
