What’s So Funny? Recent Acquisitions of Humorous Art
This installation, the third in the What's So Funny? series, features 6 works that have been acquired in the past five years, all of which date from the late 1700s to the early 1800s. In 1976 the Trier-Fodor Foundation gave the Art Gallery of Ontario more than 1100 works by the humorist and illustrator Walter Trier. The gift was accompanied by an endowment to support the acquisition and exhibition of humorous, satirical and illustrative graphic art. More than 500 prints and drawings, representing highlights in the history of caricature, have been purchased with this fund.
Organized by the Art Gallery of Ontario
