Here we have Grey And Gold, circa 1910, by Florence Carlyle.
This is Still Life, Study By Candlelight, dating to 1893, by Ozias Leduc.
Two works of art by the same artist are close together. This bust is Thunder Cloud, dating to 1913, by Emanuel Hahn, depicting the scout of Blackfoot-French background.
Thunder Cloud is depicted in whole in this Hahn sculpture, Indian Scout, done the same year.
This is Shooting The Rapids, by Frances Anne Hopkins, dating to 1879.
Today I finish with this painting. William Raphael painted Indian Encampment On The Lower St. Lawrence in 1879.
Wonderful exhibit, the last painting is my favorite. Have a happy day!
...I like the glow of the candle.ReplyDelete
Were I wealthy, I would have no trouble becoming an art collector. And I would invite you to take pictures, William, and we would sip on fine wine and nibble on cheese, Camembert at room temperature and no broken crackers. (Only a Canadian will get the last part).ReplyDelete
Love the first one. Beautiful work. The shimmer and shawl see through effect. How was that done? Amazing.ReplyDelete
Study by candlelight and shooting the rapids are my favourites!ReplyDelete
Those top two paintings might be my faves in this post. Lovely mood in both.ReplyDelete
I find that still-life by candlelight particularly appealing for reasons I can't really explain.ReplyDelete
Lovely exhibit. The light in the last painting is beautiful.ReplyDelete
@Eileen: thank you.ReplyDelete
@Tom: I do too.
@David: the cheese I'd go for.
@Marie: it's a beautiful painting.
@Magiceye: both are enchanting.
@Jeanie: thank you.
@John: I get that.
I love the candlelight effect, William.ReplyDelete
I like the bust of Thunder Cloud. It reminds me of a bust that my grandfather had when I was a little kid.ReplyDelete
A very interesting selection of art today.ReplyDelete
I think the bust of Thunder Cloud is my pick today William, very strong ✨ReplyDelete
Shooting the Rapids is my favorite.ReplyDelete
Nice exhibition !ReplyDelete
That still live is wonderful.ReplyDelete
As an avid canoeist, I can't imagine what it must have been like to shoot rapids with so many people on board.ReplyDelete
I like the second painting best.ReplyDelete
The glow from the candle is wonderful isn't it.ReplyDelete
All the best Jan
@RedPat: I do too.ReplyDelete

@Bill: it stands out.
@Gattina: thank you.

@Revrunner: it is a big boat.
@Happyone: it's a good one.
These are wonderful.ReplyDelete
I think so!Delete
So many talented artists!ReplyDelete
Very nice pictures. Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
Interesting how artwork at this exhibit still refers to Indians rather than native Canadians or indigenous people.ReplyDelete
For the most part, galleries do use the original name for a painting, and at the time they were done, that was standard terminology.Delete
I love the light in the first painting:)ReplyDelete
I do too.Delete
