Tableau de la genéologie des Boucher - family tree of the Boucher family, Marguerite d'Youville's patrilineal line.
By Sister Antonia Larivière, 1940. Ink on canvas. H: 6 feet W: 3 feet.

The last batch of photographs from the Musée M-M d'Youville. I've never seen a family tree illustrated this way, in radiating circular forms with hundreds of conical forms protruding. This was for me the most special object I saw in the Musée.
