A Gentler Time: English and Canadian Watercolour Landscapes and Other Works on Paper from the Dorothy Ward Bequest
This exhibition of over 70 watercolour landscapes and prints selected from the Ward Bequest (part of the gallery's permanent collection) provided a unique window on the relationship between the English and Nova Scotian art scenes in the late 19th century and in the early decades of this century. Its slightly ironic title referred to the fact that the works reflected no hint of the darker aspect of the period - as if the golden scenes of haymaking or of tan-sailed luggers drifting off the coast would continue unchanged for ever. The exhibition gave an especially clear picture of time in Cornwall and Brittany, and of the Academies and ateliers in Antwerp and Paris.
