Woodchuck, 1860
Watercolour over pencil

The woodchuck, or groundhog as it is more commonly called in Canada, burrows beneath the ground. William Pope presents a careful study of one of Canada’s most industrious creatures. The watercolour drawings by William Pope of birds and mammals were presented by philanthropist J. Ross Robertson to the Toronto Public Library in 1917.
