Our Children: Reflections of Childhood
in Historical Canadian Art
On View from April 13 – June 23, 2019
Location: Varley Art Gallery of Markham
216 Main Street Unionville map
From staged commissioned portraits to lighthearted scenes of leisure, this exhibition explores the portrayal of children by Canadian artists in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Collectively, these works offer insight into the changing conceptions of childhood within Canadian settler societies, including family dynamics, gender roles and class structures. The exhibition features many prominent artists from this broad period including Paul Kane, Cornelius Krieghoff, Robert Harris, George Agnew Reid and Charlotte Schreiber. Consequently, these works also speak to the development of a Canadian artistic milieu, evidenced by the establishment of artist associations, the Royal Canadian Academy and the increasing professionalisation of the artist.
