MOMA MARKOVICH CAPTURED ONTARIO’S TRANSPORATION HISTORY – ONE PAINTING AT A TIME

There was plenty of subject matter, and painter MOMA MARKOVICH (1902-1977) took full advantage of it. During a 15-year career with Ontario’s Ministry of Transportation (MTO), the Serbian-born artist created 200 works detailing the province’s famous roads and bridges.
