Angela Grossmann in Painted Past: Vancouver Art Gallery

Tuesday, July 15, 2014

Painted Past: A History of Canadian Painting from the Collection at the Vancouver Art Gallery Art has helped to define Canada, its landscape and its people. Composed of works from the Gallery's permanent collection, Painted Past traces the history of painting in both Canada and the province through three sections: portraiture, landscape and cityscape. The exhibition is the first survey of historical Canadian painting drawn from the Gallery's collection in over four decades and features works by such prominent artists as BC Binning, Emily Carr, Lawren Harris, Angela Grossmann, Frederick Varley and David Milne. The Vancouver Art Gallery has the most important collection of Canadian art in British Columbia; particularly rich in work from the region, it also has important holdings of Quebecois and other historical and modernist works from across the nation.

Angela Grossman's The Future Is Female is also currently featured in the Vancouver Art Gallery's New Acquisitions exhibition.
