Carrying on with our tour of the National Gallery, this is View Of Hamilton, by Robert Whale, painted in 1853 shortly after his immigration from Britain. It depicts high ground on the Niagara Escarpment and the view down towards the growing town of Hamilton.
This is At The Rogers Pass, Summit Of The Selkirk Range, B.C., an 1886 oil painting by John A. Fraser.
These two paintings are by the same artist, Frederic M. Bell-Smith, the first being a portrait, Queen Victoria, and the second titled The Artist Painting Queen Victoria. Both paintings date to 1895. Bell-Smith was the son of artist John Bell-Smith, whose portrait of Amelia Boddy I showed you yesterday.
I glanced into the other large interior courtyard here in the Gallery, which has this water feature that can be taken in from here, the upper floor, and even from below.
This is a rather vivid oil painting from 1916, titled De Profundis. It is by Horatio Walker, and I like the contrast between the crucified Christ and the contemporary rural scene.
This bronze sculpture has caught my eye before. It is Inspiration, by Louis-Philippe Hebert, and dates to 1904. It is something of a self portrait (or self carving) of the artist himself, receiving the titular notion from a winged figure.
Mortgaging The Homestead is another vivid oil painting from 1890, by the artist George Reid.
Moving forward in time, this colourful acrylic painting from 1980 is by the First Nations artist Norval Morrisseau. It is titled Artist And Shaman Between Two Worlds.
