Painting in Canada Part 1 – Salt Box Talk

Painting in Canada Part 1

We will trace the origins of painting in the New World from the early French patronage of the church in the 17th century to the English tradition of painting images of important officials, merchants and their properties. We will explore the Canadian landscape through the eyes of 18th century topographical painters, and the wonderful paintings of everyday life by Krieghoff and Kane. The works of the academically trained artists will also be explored, that would lead to the foundation of different art societies and associations, culminating with the foundation of the Royal Canadian Academy in 1880.

This program is designed for those who would like to discover artifacts and art history, appreciate North Hills Museum and the surrounding community. Each session will include a power point presentation on a selected theme, a guided tour of the collection where applicable and delicious baked treats and refreshments. Each lecture is $10.00 per person. A great way to spend fall Tuesdays!
