The 1975 exhibition: Media Index
Art of the Thirties in Major Exhibition
07 Jun 1975
An article on the exhibition Canadian Painting in the Thirties, currently on view in the Sam and Ayala Zacks wing of the Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto. Organized by Charles Hill, an assistant curator at the National Gallery of Canada, the exhibition includes over 100 paintings created during the Depression. It has already appeared in Ottawa and Vancouver, and will go on tour to other major centres. The show reveals how artists continued to work in the 1930s despite difficult economic times, freeing themselves from earlier art movements and providing impetus for the art of the 1940s. The well-researched catalogue includes both colour and black and white reproductions.
