Canadian paintings in Dutch museum


Here are some of the paintings which I saw during the exhibition Painting Canada – Tom Thomson and The Group of Seven in Groningen, the Netherlands.

In Canada, the country of his birth, Alex Colville was the best known living artist until his death July 16, 2013 at the age of 92. For those outside Canada, there is still a good chance you have seen a Colville painting at some point, if only in passing: here.
