Ladylikeness: Historical Portraits of Women by Women

Opens March 8, 2019
Organized by Glenbow in partnership with Library and Archives Canada

Almost 200 years of portraiture is represented in this exhibition, with works dating from 1768 to 1960. Historically, women made portraits of other women to document family, express friendships, assert status and bestow patronage and to establish professional artistic careers. This varied selection of amateur and professional portraits, drawn from the collections of Library and Archives Canada and Glenbow, is a fascinating look at how these artists chose to work within the genre in different ways, making it their own.

Glenbow offers a range of special exhibitions each year welcoming the best of international travelling exhibitions as well as drawing from our extensive collections. Explore our Permanent Exhibitions available all year 'round.
