Canadian Painters and Impressionism

The exhibition shows how Canadian painters discovered Impressionism in France at the end of the 19th century and how they reacted to this development. On their return to Canada, many of these artists gave an essential impulse to the rise of modern Canadian painting. The exhibition presents 35 Canadian artists, many of whom remained unknown outside the borders of their country. The works in this exhibition are grouped into eight sections that follow the careers of these painters, from their introduction to Impressionism to their interpretation and presentation of Canadian aspects.
