Maud Lewis’s painted house is a treasure that was almost lost forever. Her house sat empty after Maud, and later her husband Everett Lewis passed away. The elements were on the verge of destroying this tiny jewel forever. Thankfully, the efforts and dedication of many people ensured that this unique house would continue to inspire people from around the world.

The Painted House of Maud Lewis documents the process of how the house was saved from the elements, disassembled, restored and preserved to delight and inspire future generations.

Author and conservator Laurie Hamilton shows how all the different parts of the house — the building itself, the painted household items, even the wallpaper — were catalogued, conserved, and prepared for exhibition. This book features more than 65 colour photos of her life, house, and its restoration.
