In Seclusion with Nature: The Later Work of L. LeMoine FitzGerald, 1942-1956

27 May – 9 July, 1989

An exhibition of 63 works, including oils and works on paper, which mark the changes in the work of Canadian artist Lionel LeMoine FitzGerald from 1942 until his death in 1956. These later works are noted for their parallel development of both abstract and realist images, and are a departure from FitzGerald’s previous efforts in terms of both subject matter and handling of medium. Curated by Gary Esser, Winnipeg Art Gallery, and Michael Parke-Taylor, Curator at the Art Gallery of Ontario, the exhibition is organized by the Winnipeg Art Gallery and funded by the Museum Assistance Program, Communications Canada; the Volunteer Committee of the Winnipeg Art Gallery; and the Winnipeg Art Gallery Foundation.
