Descrizione
This handsomely produced volume, featuring 128 full-page color illustrations, showcases a wide-ranging selection of the most outstanding works from Canada's largest art museum. Each of the pieces chosen for inclusion is introduced by a curatorial specialist, who sets it in its historical context and comments on its meaning and its place in the artist's oeuvre. Pride of place is given to the Gallery's unparalleled holdings in Canadian art, but European art-paintings, sculptures, prints, and drawings-is equally well represented. Masterworks from the Inuit art collection are also included, as well as examples from the Gallery's small but distinguished Asian collection. In recent decades, photographs have become an increasingly important part of the Gallery's collecting mandate, both through its own collection and that of its affiliate the Canadian Museum of Contemporary Photography, and this emphasis too is amply reflected here.
