Embracing Canada: Landscapes from Krieghoff to the Group of Seven

Embracing Canada: Landscapes from Krieghoff to the Group of Seven

For over a century the natural world and our relationship to it was a major subject for Canadian artists. Through paintings in the 1800s by Cornelius Krieghoff, Zacharie Vincent and others, Embracing Canada begins with early depictions of Indigenous peoples. European settlers in the Canadian landscape are also depicted by the artists such as Charlotte Schreiber and Homer Watson, who are associated with the founding of the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts in 1880, as well as the artists associated with the expanding Canadian Pacific Railway including Frederick M. Bell-Smith.
