Prairie Landscape in Dalle de Verre (North Side)

Wilf Perreault and Barry Fry, Regina

c. 1965

Wilf Perreault is a highly regarded realist painter in Regina. This magnificent semi-abstract in dalle de verre ("slabs of glass") is his only known work in the medium, extending along both walls in 28 panels.

The relatively rare medium of dalle de verre uses richly coloured inch-thick chunks of glass which are each hand-chiselled to create the design.
