"From its establishment in 1912 as the first civic art gallery in Canada to its role a century later as one of the leading visual arts institutions in the country, the history of the Winnipeg Art Gallery is inextricably linked to the principle that the cause of art is the cause of the people. Sustained by a distinguished lineageof professional staff, volunteers, members, and supporters, and defined by the outstanding collections, exhibitions, and programs it has built, the W AG is a product of the people and art that fill its spaces and make possible its broad reach into the community. The year 2012 marked the WAG's centennial, and with it the opportunity to organize an exhibition that celebratesnot just the Gallery's rich holdings but those from across the nation. The result is 100 Masters: Only in Canada, curated by WAG Director and CEO, Dr . Stephen Borys, presented at the Gallery from May 11 to August 18, 20913, and documented in this lavishly illustrated publication. The truly historicassemblage of one hundred works of art from twenty-eight museums in Canada and two in the United States, along with ten pieces from the WAG's collect ion is divided evenly between Canadian and non-Canadian art. Among the loans there are fifty Canadian works and a combination of fifty European and American works spanning six centuries, from 1500 to 2010." - from the dustjacket.Very good in clean, crisp dustjacket.
