Discover some of the oldest and best loved artworks in the WAG collection in salon-style fashion, featuring some rarely seen gems from the 16th-to-19th centuries. Salon-style references how the Paris Salon installed paintings beginning in the late 17th century and continuing through the 19th century.
Attempting to save space by hanging as many paintings as possible on one wall, the Salon hung works very close together, from floor to ceiling. This exhibit brings together nearly 200 paintings by artists ranging from Eugène Boudin to Prudence Heward, Tom Thomson to Emily Carr, and many others.
