I had an Interesting French Artist to See Me this Summer at the Vancouver Art Gallery

This first pairing of the Modernist painters Wolfgang Paalen (1905–1959) and Emily Carr (1871–1945) will tell the story of how the artists met in Victoria, British Columbia, in 1939, and how the creative vision of each expanded in reaction to the majestic landscape of British Columbia and the monumental art of the Northwest Coast First Nations. With artworks assembled from public and private collections internationally, the exhibition will present early works, ancillary archival materials and the audacious later work of both artists as they moved toward their transcendent visions. 


Weinstein Gallery is honored to lend to this important exhibition.
