All about Kane paintings

Watch an insightful video on Paul Kane, subject of an ACI online art book to be released Fall 2014

Paul Kane is certainly an ACI favourite. Working in the Victorian era, Kane’s paintings documented Canada’s western landscape and provided an essential artistic and ethnographic record of the country’s indigenous people. In the video below, we see Royal Ontario Museum technician Liliane Lortie talk about her favourite Kane pieces. Preview the ACI’s Paul Kane: Life and Work by Arlene Gehmacher here.
