Legacy Maltwood (at Mearns Centre РMcPherson Library)

A series of surrealistic watercolour paintings which began as a tribute to Sveva Caetani’s father who passed away when she was only 17. For 25 years following her father’s passing, Caetani lived in virtual isolation, caring for her invalid mother. At her mother’s passing, Caetani obtained her teaching certificate at UVic and began her career as an inspiring art teacher.
