Nature and Man Revealed: The Mr. and Mrs. H.J.M Watson Collection of British Paintings
On view April 1, 2017 to October 8, 2017



Nature and Man Revealed features the wide-ranging 18th-and 19th-century drawings recently donated by long-time Hamilton collectors Clare and Michael Watson. The high quality of this collection of British art in Canada is exceedingly rare. Thus, this exhibition presents an opportunity to view important works, many of which are on public display for the first time.

Such outstanding views as Thomas Girtin's Romantic Landscape reveal the first steps towards the more fluid and dynamic pictures of his close friend J.M.W. Turner. Alter natively, William Blake's Head of a Faun and Richard Cosway's Daphnis and Chloe illustrates the Engish fascination with Greco-Roman mythology. In shor t, the exhibit ion will highlight the quality and breadth of the Watsons' collection, which shines brightest when the 18th-century Academic works and colourful chalk drawings of Antique subjects are contrasted with the pictorial diversity characteristic of British landscapes.
