EUROfix I: The Art of the Old Masters
September 19, 2009 to February 23, 2010
EUROfix celebrates the European collections of the Winnipeg Art Gallery, featuring works of art spanning six centuries, and including paintings, sculptures, drawings, and decorative art. This three-part exhibition comprising over 150 works is divided into three sections, which each explore key movements in the development of European art from 1450 to 1950—The Art of the Old Masters, Master Drawings, and The Road to Modernism.
EUROfix I: The Art of the Old Masters focuses on works produced between 1450 and 1850, originating from the leading artistic centers of Western Europe: France, Italy, Spain, and the northern countries of Belgium, Germany, and Holland. Commissioned by various religious and secular institutions and individuals, this group of paintings, sculptures, and decorative arts reflects the growing diversity of patronage at the time. Along with the important social and political changes marking this period in European history, the course of art underwent a major transformation. Not only did the physical nature of painting change, but the role of the artist, the patron, and the art object itself evolved.
EUROfix invites the visitor to explore the art of the Old Masters as celebrated in the WAG’s permanent collection.
