Brushing It In the Rough: Women, Art & Nineteenth-century Canada | Sigmund Samuel Gallery of Canada, Level 1

August 23, 2013 to May 5, 2014


This exhibition examined how three 19th century women artists addressed and articulated their own Canadian experiences. The works of artists Anna Jameson, Susanna Moodie, and Alice Killaly were augmented by those of Ruth Abernethy, a contemporary artist interpreting the role of women in Canada’s 19th century settler society. All objects from the ROM's Canadiana collections.
