Quebec artist F.S. Coburn featured in Sherbrooke museum exhibition

F.S. Coburn is perhaps best known for his rural Quebec scenes, but, Coburn was an eclectic painter and his works covered a variety of subjects of interest.

I found an interesting article on Coburn, which you can read if you click on the bottom link. The nude study which appears above is one of Coburn's collection which is housed in the Sherbrooke museum of fine arts.

If you click on the link you will see a lovely lady is wearing a long green dress and it appears that this is the same woman - but maybe not.
