Newfoundland’s Mary Pratt is one of Canada’s finest still-life realists

“Of all the paintings I’ve done, I think I like this best.  My first grandchild in her first bath.  Secure against her mother’s arm . . . Curiosity overcoming fear.  A promising child.” <‘Child With Two Adults’, 1983, Mary Pratt>

Touring nationally, the exhibition ‘MARY PRATT’ is allowing Canadians to view well-known and rarely seen works gathered from private and public collections.  Concentrating on Pratt’s oils and mixed media paintings, the exhibition juxtaposes more than sixty paintings from different times in the artist’s career.
