This is Souvenir Of Loch Lomond, by the French artist Gustave Dore, painted in 1875.
A bit of a fuzzy shot, but I wanted a look at one of the galleries. This does the trick, and this space is dominated by that portrait at the far end.
This portrait is by John Watson Gordon, and depicts George Ramsay, 9th Earl of Dalhousie, a British veteran of the Napoleonic wars who served as Governor In Chief of British North America from 1820-29.
And this one, Tomb Of General Brock, Queenston Heights, Ontario, is by the American painter Thomas Cole. The British hero of the War of 1812, killed at the battle here, is entombed beneath the Memorial. This painting, from 1830, depicts the first monument; the present structure at the site was constructed in the 1850s.
The gallery space itself looks incredible William.. the perfect foil for these classic works of art.ReplyDelete
You are making us to love the painting.ReplyDelete
I like the image showing the gallery layout. Looks inviting.ReplyDelete
I love those galleries where a photo dominates, don't you?ReplyDelete
I like that curved ceiling over the gallery!ReplyDelete
The Doré is great, but Cole is my favorite here!ReplyDelete
That gallery has an interesting ceiling.ReplyDelete
Looking at the paintings, the first and the last are my favorites. I prefer landscapes. :-)
really like the powerful colors in these landscapes.ReplyDelete
It's nice to see the art and the space where it's displayed.ReplyDelete

@Tex: so do I.ReplyDelete
@Halcyon: and it's a pleasure to show it.
@Norma: I quite agree!
@Tanya: it certainly is.
@Linda: as do I.
@Sharon: me too!
General wolfe's grave is interesting as it shows a very angry tumultuous scene. The style was certainly for dark paintings.ReplyDelete
It's a lovely gallery!ReplyDelete
The gallery looks wonderful!ReplyDelete
I love to wander through art museums and marvel at the work of those artists.ReplyDelete
I'm enjoying this tour of works I don't know!ReplyDelete
@Red: it is a very moody painting. The location's changed a good deal- the area around that monument today is a preserved battleground and garden.ReplyDelete
@Marleen: it certainly is!
@RedPat: it really is that.
@Linda: this is one of my favourite places in the city.
@Ciel: in 2014 there was an exhibit of Dore's work here, done in collaboration with the Musee d'Orsay. They must also have some of his work.
Nice to see a young couple enjoying the sights together.ReplyDelete
Beautiful. I especially like the first one.ReplyDelete
Great title. Thanks for showing the gallery space, the high arches and openness provide a reverence for the beautiful artwork within.ReplyDelete
