A detailed chronology explores the multifaceted ways in which Canadians contributed to the evolution of Impressionism. Follow these Canadian artists as they travel abroad and return home again, over a series of journeys taking place during the last decades of the nineteenth century to the turn of the twentieth. Approximately 125 masterworks by some 35 artists situate Canadian art within the global phenomenon of Impressionism and present a fresh perspective on its reception in the arts of Canada. Adopting a thematic approach, comprehensive essays demonstrate the commitment of these pioneering artists to an innovative interpretation of foreign and familiar surroundings, imbued with an Impressionist vocabulary. With contributions by Katerina Atanassova, Tobi Bruce, Anna Hudson, Laurier Lacroix, Loren Lerner, Tracey Lock, Gerta Moray, Sandra Paikowsky and Adam Gopnik.
