Scope and content
Item is a watercolour drawing by Canadian artist Henri Julien (1852-1908) entitled "L'arrivée du courrier" (Title is taken from the auction catalogue). The scene depicts a two wheeled fully loaded mail wagon drawn by a single horse, with driver and passenger, arriving in front of an unknown Quebec rural post office. A small crowd of people on hand to greet the wagon looks on while the passenger, hat in his right hand, shakes the hand of an elderly man (presumably the town postmaster).
