An advertisement for the Carroll Gallery in The Year’s Art 1914 noted that “We have the honor to announce that we are EXCLUSIVE REPRESENTATIVES for the productions of CHARLES JOHN COLLINGS, As also for those of N.H.J. BAIRD, R.O.I., and ROBERT MEYERHEIM, R.I.” (12), and the work of these artists seem to have made up the bulk of their exhibition schedule. Collings was a British artist, who specialized in landscape painting. In 1910, he moved to Canada and much of his later work takes the Canadian landscape, particularly the Rocky Mountains, as his subject matter. Meyerheim and Baird were also landscape artists.
