“Nature is painting for us, day after day, pictures of infinite beauty if only we have the eyes to see them.”― John Ruskin, author of Modern Painters (1843)

Inspired by romantic notions of the picturesque and the sublime, Canadian artists have responded to nature and landscape with emerging concerns of colonialism, nationhood, decolonialism, indigeneity, industrialism and environmentalism. Come take a journey through the canon of Canadian landscape painting and visit reopening of McLean Centre for Indigenous and Canadian Art.
