Iconic - The Death of General Wolfe

Short film about the painting.
This historic painting recreates the pivotal moment in 1759 when Britain defeated France on the Plains of Abraham. As one of only five original versions painted by Benjamin West, this object is one of the Royal Ontario Museum's iconic treasures. Visitors can see the original painting hanging in the Sigmund Samuel Gallery of Canada.
