We start today where we left off yesterday, with another of the sculptures in the reflecting pool courtyard. This is Inspiration, by Louis-Philippe Hebert.
The Smiths is an 1894 oil painting by W. Blair Bruce.
Robert Harris painted A Meeting Of The School Trustees in 1885.
This wider view takes in a display case at the centre of this area with Haida artifacts.
In this particular area, the emphasis is on Canadian artists who spent time abroad and what they were painting. Two paintings are close together. This is Prow Of A Gondola, Venice, by James Wilson Morrice, circa 1897.
And here we have St. Mark's, Venice, a 1901 painting by Henry Sandham.
Amazing to find a view of Venice...ReplyDelete
Nice sculpture in the first picture.ReplyDelete
A Meeting Of The School is fabulous! A powerful piece.ReplyDelete
'The Smiths' is a very expressive painting, I like it.ReplyDelete
...art is created to inspire.ReplyDelete
You do a fine job in exposing Canadian art and artists to the world, William.ReplyDelete
@Italiafinlandia: Venice inspires many.ReplyDelete
@Nancy: I think so.
@Gemel: that painting is the subject of a short film called a Heritage Minute.
@Jan: I do too.
I love that Harris piece. It is one for the ages really.ReplyDelete
The meeting of the school trustees -- all men with what I presume is the woman teacher -- fascinates me.ReplyDelete
They actually let a woman be at the trustees meeting!ReplyDelete
That St. Marks painting is very nice.ReplyDelete
I remember seeing a school trustees meeting before.ReplyDelete
School trustees... I had that at work! (Obviously didn´t work out).ReplyDelete
I wonder how many famous artists "cut their teeth", so to speak, on the square near St. Mark's.ReplyDelete
Wonderful exhibits. I like the first sculpture and the St. Marks painting. Have a happy weekend!
Love that sculpture!ReplyDelete

@Jeanie: it's evocative.
@Magiceye: thank you.
