From the Author

I am delighted to acknowledge the many people who helped bring this work to fruition. Molly Lamb Bobak’s daughter, Anny Scoones, graciously offered insights on all aspects of her mother’s life, helping me to fill gaps in my archival research.

I am grateful to Meredith MacLean, the Collections Specialist at the Canadian War Museum, who facilitated my research into the Molly Lamb Bobak fonds and arranged for me to view work by both Molly and Bruno Bobak. I would also like to express my sincere thanks to Professor Brian Foss for generously sharing his expertise on Canadian war artists.


It has been a pleasure to work with the wonderful team at the Art Canada Institute—including Anna Hudson, Ruth Jones, Erin Szikora, Michael Rattray, and Kendra Ward. The book has benefitted immensely from Rosemary Shipton’s guidance and editorial input, and I thank her for her patience and good humour. I am especially grateful to Sara Angel for her constant encouragement and for inviting me to contribute to this wonderful resource.


I would like to thank my colleagues at the Ottawa Art Gallery—Alexandra Badzak, Rebecca Basciano, and Catherine Sinclair—whose support during the research and writing of this book, as we simultaneously planned the gallery’s inaugural exhibition, was unwavering.


Finally, I owe a longstanding debt to my parents for their belief in me and what I do, and especially to my husband, Dr. Marcel Swiboda, whose deep commitment to humanistic education inspires me always.
