Temporary exhibition

Tuesday November 11, 2003 — Sunday January 25, 2004

Canvas of War

Masterpieces from the Canadian War Museum

This exhibition has ended.

More than sixty works are showcased in the landmark exhibition, including paintings by Alex Colville, Charles Comfort, Molly Lamb Bobak and four members of the Group of Seven. Many of the paintings have not been exhibited in eighty years; others have never been publicly displayed. From an image of jubilant Armistice Day celebrations to a stark depiction of a drowning sailor, these compelling works are powerful testimony to the Canadian war experience.

This travelling exhibition is organized by the Canadian War Museum and the Canadian Museum of Civilization.
