William Pars’ Portrait of the Young Simcoe (1770-75) is showcased alongside watercolours by Elizabeth Simcoe in this exhibition which celebrates the 1783 Act Against Slavery.  The Act was an important step toward limiting slavery in the Canadas and is considered Simcoe’s most important achievement as Lieutenant-Governor of Upper Canada.
