Northern Pine Lecture Series: Siobhan Angus
Thursday, January 21, 2021 | 4 pm
Join Siobhan Angus, a Banting Postdoctoral Fellow in the History of Art at Yale University, for a fascinating lecture entitled “A.Y. Jackson and the Industrial Landscape.”
Angus will take viewers on a journey through the industrial landscape paintings of A.Y. Jackson and his contemporaries.
“Painting has historically played a complex and often contradictory role in shaping cultural impressions of nature and development. Paintings that document how mining and logging reshaped the natural landscape are both in dialogue, and in tension with, the wilderness landscape painting aesthetic that became dominant in the 1920s.”
This exhibition is organized in conjunction with the exhibition ‘Northern Pine: Watercolours and Drawings by the Group of Seven from the McMichael Canadian Art Collection‘.
