  1. This is an early work by Wood from 1913. The museum has over 50 etchings similar to this example on display in the Historical Art Gallery Room. In total, nearly 75 original works by Wood in gouache, watercolour, oil and etching. A display of Woods homemade etching tools and press is being considered.

    It constitutes the largest collection of Bill Wood artwork, ephemera,and equipment on display in any museum in the world. As such W.J Wood made a significant contribution to the Canadian Art scene 1910-1950.

    this is my Great Grandfather.
    I find him to be an amazing artist
    He was also an amazing man and did anything that he could to help his family.
    I loved my Great Grandfather

  3. I have 5 etchings by W.J. Wood similar to that pictured here. Not sure if this is the place to ask or not, but I am having a hard time finding an appraisal value for this body of work. Is there anyone who can point me in the right direction?I would greatly appreciate any help you could offer.
