Box 6

Artwork consists of numerous sketches and one sketchbook by George Leslie Stout. The sketchbook is filled with figure drawings. Sketches are in pencil and ink of landscapes, animals, people and scenes from travels. Stout loosely grouped the sketches together by topic with titles such as "Pool Doodles" of people lounging by a poolside and "Pencil Studies Zoo, Park Studies," which are sketches of animals and landscapes. Stout also made holiday greetings cards for which he drew illustrations and added text. Photocopies of several of the completed greeting cards are included. There is one caricature of Eric Brown, Director of the National Gallery of Canada, by Murray Pease, Stout's friend and colleague.
