  • Your Collection at the NGC: Lawren S. Harris

    Your Collection at the NGC: Lawren S. Harris

    Before he conceived of his iconic mountain forms, and before he ventured into abstract compositions, Lawren S. Harris (1885–1970) was inspired by the urban environment of Toronto. Indeed, Harris routinely painted urban scenes from the early 1910s and into the early 1920s. The National Gallery of Canada's new acquisition Billboard (Jazz) is an exceptional example from this seminal period in the artist’s career.

    Nancy Graves: From Camels to Moonscapes

    Years ago, when the National Gallery of Canada was located in the former Lorne Building at 90 Elgin Street in Ottawa, one of its most popular “storefront” draws was a display of Nancy Graves’ Camel VI, Camel VII and Camel VIII (1968–1969). Now on view once again, this trio of life-sized camel sculptures is enthralling audiences in an installation at the NGC.

  • Patio Chairs and White Whales: Brian Jungen’s Shapeshifter and Vienna

    Patio Chairs and White Whales: Brian Jungen’s Shapeshifter and Vienna

    Brian Jungen’s Shapeshifter (2000) and Vienna (2003) are currently on view together at the NGC. Although both works are part of the national collection, such is their size — at 6.6 metres (21 feet) and 8.5 metres (28 feet) respectively — that they are not often displayed side by side.
