Notes
"George Robert Bruenech, a watercolor painter, died in Toronto, Canada, July 22, at the age of 65. He was born at St. Malo, in France, where his father was British Consul. He studied under Murchiani, Paul Rossert and at the Colarossi Academy in Paris. In 1872 he went to Canada, entered the civil service and for 20 years was a member of the Royal Canadian Academy. Mr. Bruenech's work attracted much attention from the Princess Louise when she was in Canada. It also received favorable recognition from the royal families of Sweden and Norway, his picture of the "Midnight Sun in Norway," hanging in the Royal Palace at Stockholm."
