Nova Scotia’s “Watercolour World” before 1900 Thu Jan 16, 2020

Nova Scotia’s “Watercolour World” before 1900

Thursday, January 16th at 7:30 pm
Museum of Natural History (Auditorium)
Summer Street, Halifax

This talk will outline the UK-based Watercolour World digital public history project (https://www.watercolourworld.org/), and why we hope Nova Scotian institutions and collectors will contribute to it. Contrasting the UK experience with a brief history of the art form in Nova Scotia, it will demonstrate how differences in chronology and in collecting by institutions in Canada made for very different perspectives on collections here. Finally, it will provide a brief overview of some of the more important artists and works in both the collections of the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia and the Nova Scotia Museum, focused on landscape views, that we hope will be part of the larger Watercolour World project and in future available online for all to enjoy.
