A Finale To The Gallery

When one exits the world art area (depending on the path one takes), there is a gallery space often used for smaller temporary exhibits. Beautiful Monsters is the present case, with this exhibit extended into mid-November. Consisting primarily of prints and drawings from Europe depicting mythical and legendary stories, the exhibit includes this silver and gilded bronze sculpture. Attributed to "master of the bull hunt", after Lorenzo Vaccaro, it dates to around 1700 and is titled St. George And The Dragon.

The staircase heading down includes this limestone sculpture by Aristide Maillol. Young Woman Bathing was carved between 1919-21.

A look back up the stairs takes in the glass tower, with the sculpture Tepkik by First Nations artist Jordan Bennett visible. I hope you've enjoyed this visit to the National Gallery of Canada. I expect I'll be back in again sometime soon.
