Canada's painting tradition has helped document and inform our nation's history and development. From shared and disparate vantage points, artists have depicted a land of awesome physical diversity, inhabited by peoples of ranging beliefs, outlooks and ways of life.

Canada on Canvas brings together historical portraiture, landscape and abstract paintings ranging from the 1940s to the 1970s by some of the country's most distinguished artists, including Cornelius Krieghoff, Lawren Harris, Tom Thomson, Emily Carr, Norval Morrisseau and Jean-Paul Riopelle. The 40 works in this exhibition are drawn from a major private collection, on extended loan to the Winnipeg Art Gallery, as well as from the Gallery's permanent collection.
