Ships, fishing, shorelines, and waterways were common themes found in Madden’s works. These themes were as common as seeing Madden himself nestled into the riverbanks and shorelines he depicted. Although he moved to Toronto as a young man, he always came home to quiet and beauty of Lennox and Addington County.
“A Day On The River” can viewed at the museum until Spring 2020. Portions of our own Madden collection that depict various waterscapes can be viewed within the vignette setting.
