The 1975 exhibition: Media Index
La peinture canadienne des années trente
03 Oct 1975
According to Arnold Kohler, art historians have systematically ignored Canadian art. Yet several movements deserve interest, in particular the Group of Seven in the 1920s and the Automatists in the 1940s. Between these two decades, the 1930s represented a period of artistic proliferation, characterized by various influences and the appearance of several cultural centres. Of note are lyrical depictions of vast spaces, such as in British Columbia, as well as a certain realism, as in Charles Comfort?s murals, or a fairy-tale Expressionism. Charles Hill?s work is a serious and complete reference about this period.
