Max Jacquiard (2006)
The following is from his website www.maxjacquiard.com:

Max Jacquiard has become one of the most respected artists in Canada in his specialized field of painting images of trains. A printer by trade, Max has been painting steam trains exclusively since 1981. These powerful acrylic images on canvas conjure up visions of the strength and romance of the steam trains that have been a part of his life since his early childhood in both Flin Fon, Manitoba, and his later move to British Columbia.

Kings of the Road Max is a member of the 'Society of Steam Era Artists of America'. The evocative nature of Max Jacquiard's paintings have captured the imaginations of steam buffs across Canada and the United States. His paintings now grace the walls of many North American homes and corporate offices.

Kings of the Road by Max Jacquiard

The great depression of the 1930s brought hard times to Canadians as well as to much of the world. Unemployed men took to the roads and rails in the often vain hope of finding jobs and opportunities unavailable in their own regions. Between trains and between possibilities, three travellers settle in to contemplate tomorrow.
