For the second time in three years, TORONTO’s Art Gallery of Ontario is bringing a major Canadian artist to LONDON’s Dulwich Picture Gallery. The AGO’s blockbuster exhibition ‘Painting Canada: Tom Thomson and the Group of Seven’ was greeted enthusiastically in the British capital with long lineups in 2011.
<INDIAN WAR CANOE, Emily Carr, Dulwich Picture Gallery> Curated by Canadian art critic Sarah Milroy and Ian Dejardin, Sackler Director of the Dulwich, ‘From the Forest to the Sea: Emily Carr in British Columbia’ is a joint project and will be on view from November 1 to March 8 in LONDON, returning to TORONTO from April 11 to July 12.
For EMILY CARR, the Victoria BC-born artist, this will be her first major retrospective in Europe. The exhibition features about 100 paintings, watercolours and drawings, including rarely seen sketches, works drawn from private collections, and the recently discovered illustrated journal ‘Sister and I in Alaska’.
Generally favourably reviewed in London, too! A sequel to the Group of Seven show Dulwich mounted a few years ago.
