Into the Light: The Art of Lionel LeMoine FitzGerald
July 7, 2020 to September 7, 2020
Into the Light is the first exhaustive survey of the influential Manitoba modernist, and Group of Seven member, in 40 years.
Beloved for his sensitive, serene depictions of Manitoba, Winnipeg artist Lionel LeMoine FitzGerald (1890–1956) was the last member to join the Group of Seven in 1932.
Compared to the more outspoken members of the Group, FitzGerald’s voice was a quieter one, his legacy including both his stewardship of the Winnipeg School of Art (1929-1947) and the development of the WAG.
He had his first show at the WAG in 1921, becoming one of Canada’s best known modernist painters.
