The Vancouver Art Gallery is housed in the former main courthouse in Vancouver. Architect Francis Rattenbury designed this neoclassical building in 1905. Rattenbury also designed both the Empress Hotel as well as the Parliament Buildings in Victoria, British Columbia.
See major works by some of the world’s leading contemporary artists and history’s greatest masters. The Vancouver Art Gallery is home to a permanent collection of over 10,000 artworks, featuring more than 200 major works by famous Canadian artists Emily Carr, the Group of Seven, and Jeff Wall, as well as international artists Marc Chagall and Henry Callahan.
Emily Carr (December 13, 1871 – March 2, 1945), born in Victoria, B.C., is one of Canada’s most renowned artists, significant as a landscape painter and a modernist. The most important B.C. artist of her generation, she is best known for her attention to the totem poles of the First Nations people of British Columbia and the rainforests of the Pacific Northwest.
The Group of Seven (1920 – 1933) is a collection of Canadian landscape painters who started the first Canadian national art movement. Since their first show in 1920, their artwork has been influencing generations of artists.
