Franklin Brownell Peleg (Canadian 1857-1946), "St. Kitts, British West Indies," oil on canvas, 9 1/4" x 14" (with frame 17 x 22)
Influenced by the French Impressionists of the nineteenth century, Canadian Impressionists navigated new terrain as they sought to find their own artistic form of expression within the movement that was stirring much controversy in the latter half of the 1800’s. Artists of this movement made the radical decision to apply techniques employed by the French Impressionists to Canadian landscapes, still life’s and portrait paintings, producing images infused with brilliant light and oscillating colours. Their legacy is seen in works by the Group of Seven and others who further translated the transient nature of the real world through color, light, and brushstrokes. This exhibition will feature works by Laura Muntz Lydall, Peleg Franklin Brownell, Marc-Aurele De Foy Suzor-Cote, Robert Pilot, John Wentworth Russel and John Hammond. Showing alongside this exhibition are a rotating selection of museum quality paintings, objets d’art, and antiques from Europe and North America.
