This is the first major exhibition to focus on the Canadian Group of Painters, its "look" and its legacy. Organized and circulated by the Agnes Etherington Art Centre, Queens University, the exhibition draws some 40 works, circa 1933 to 1953, from public and private collections across Canada. The Canadian Group of Painters represents a formative period in Canadian art. Its "vital force" was its engagement with modern life-in subject matter, artistic approach and social activity-against a background of the Depression, World War II, post-war reconstruction and the Cold War.
