Each portrait in this collection from Winnipeg artist and designer, Robert J. Sweeney, brings to life in brilliant colour, the many faces of Manitoba’s River City.
With over forty full colour illustrations of Winnipeg’s most loved locations, Portraits of Winnipeg: The River City in Pen & Ink captures the true spirit of the city.
From Portage and Main to the Forks, to Kildonan Park’s “Witch’s Hut” Sweeney’s keen eye captures the familiar sights of Winnipeg and its surrounding suburban areas with extraordinary detail and precision.
