1920s Modernism in Montreal: The Beaver Hall Group

October 22, 2016 - January 29, 2017

Organized by the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts

The Beaver Hall Group are inextricably linked with the history of art in Montreal, Quebec and Canada. Initially considered to be a Montreal counterpart to Toronto's Group of Seven, the group stood apart through their work: rather than offering an image of Canadian identity through depictions of the untamed landscapes of a northern country, the Montreal artists imbued the inhabited landscapes of a northern culture with the colours of modernity. They also painted many portraits that convey this same quest for modernism; these works rank among the most remarkable in the history of Canadian art. The male-female parity within the group - a first in Quebec as in Canada - is another resolutely modern trait. The exhibition 1920s Modernism in Montreal: The Beaver Hall Group presents works by its official members as well as by artists associated with them through friendship and solidarity; it demonstrates that the group's diversity fuelled rich and fruitful exchanges.
