Waddington's Auction House Biography and Notes

Though completed in 1984, this painting by Toronto-based painter Chris Temple feels timeless, instantly recognizable for visitors and citizens of Toronto alike. Situated on Front Street, the facades of this particular stretch have not been radically altered since their construction, and impart a charmingly historical feel to the painting.
