About this item

Exploration of this vast and richly varied environment, people’s place within it and their attitudes toward it have been driving forces in Canadian art since the beginning of secular imagery in the country. Whether it was early artists such as Robert Clow Todd and Cornelius Krieghoff documenting the winter wonderland of nineteeth-century Quebec, or The Group of Seven exploring the length and breadth of the country through their practice, succeeding generations of artists have made a significant contribution to our understanding of the country.Embracing Canada: Landscapes from Krieghoff to The Group of Seven combines over 150 works from the Vancouver Art Gallery’s permanent collection and an eminent private collection of Canadian painting to present a comprehensive survey of Canadian landscapes made between the mid-eighteenth and mid- nineteenth centuries.
