Prime Ministers featured in new Art Gallery of Nova Scotia exhibit
All 23 of Canada's prime ministers are presented with both majesty and mischief at a new exhibit at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia meant to mark the country's 150th birthday.
The artwork represents a variety of mediums, from paintings and engraved stamps to editorial cartoons, statues and even cash money.
The collection begins with a lithograph of the 1864 scene from Charlottetown, when delegates including future prime ministers Sir John A. Macdonald and Sir Charles Tupper met to discuss Confederation.
It ends with an editorial cartoon of current prime minister Justin Trudeau, shown standing next to his father Pierre – the elder Trudeau with a rose pinned to his lapel and the son with a marijuana leaf.
