Perspectives

 Starting off today, a wide view of one of the last portions of the Canadian galleries includes this work by the Anishinaabe artist Norval Morrisseau. Artist And Shaman Between Two Worlds is from 1980.

Morrisseau also painted these two, in 1971. Untitled (Child) is beside Untitled (Shaman).

Alex Colville is well known to Canadians. This is one of his best known paintings. To Prince Edward Island is from 1965, and includes the artist and his wife.

Stepping out of the Canadian galleries, I stopped at a nearby temporary multimedia installation before heading up to the world art galleries. South African artist William Kentridge devised More Sweetly Play The Dance. It incorporates music and figures travelling across the walls of this room and is a response to the former apartheid era of his country.
