From Kreighoff to the Group of Seven
February 20 - May 29, 2016
Organized by the Vancouver Art Gallery and curated by Ian Thom
The exploration of the Canadian landscape and our place within it has been one of the predominant themes of Canadian painting. Whether it is early artists such as Robert Clow Todd and Cornelius Krieghoff exploring the winter wonderland of 19th century Quebec or the Group of Seven exploring the length and breadth of the country, succeeding generations of artists have contributed to our understanding of this country. Featuring major works by figures such as Krieghoff, Tom Thomson, members of the Group of Seven, Emily Carr and David Milne, this exhibition surveys this history of artistic engagement with the Canadian landscape from the mid-19th to mid-20th century.
