Colville House, on the campus of Mount Allison University in Sackville, New Brunswick, was the home of renowned Canadian artist Alex Colville, his wife Rhoda and their four children from 1949 to 1973. It was during these years that the artist produced many of his most important works, including Horse and Train and Nude and Dummy as well as two major murals on the campus of Mount Allison. Alex Colville was a graduate of the Fine Art program at Mount Allison (Class of 1942), and a teacher in the Fine Art Department from 1946 to 1963.
