Visions of Light and Air: Canadian Impressionism 1885-1920

August 31, 1995

This was the first major survey exhibition since the early 1970s to examine the impact and influence of Impressionism on Canadian artists at the turn of the century. The exhibition proposed that Canadian Impressionism was a vital link between 19th century academic painting and the nationalist style of the Group of Seven, and that Impressionism was the first stage of modernism in Canada. The catalogue contains essays by Carol Lowrey, Laurier Lacroix, and Robert Stacey.
