    • Abstract Composition, 1958

    • Oil paintings; Abstract works
    • Either a highly abstract oil of strata, for instance, or a non-objective work. Onley achieves a balance of graduated coloured vertical and horizontal elements. This work is an outcome of Onley’s experience at San Miguel de Allende in Mexico...
    • Autumn Landscape Pattern, 1930

    • Oil paintings; Landscape paintings; Forests
    • Milne sets up a contrast between the black log establishing the setting for the composition and its dark branch in the middle ground, and the more open, variegated touches of red, white and orange brown canvas behind it. A white snowy foreground...
    • Autumn Winds, 1955

    • Gouaches; Landscape paintings; Prairies; Fences; Clouds
    • Kiss depicts the horizontal strata of dirt and rocks, field and fence, and trees at the horizon line under a big prairie sky with organic wisps of clouds.
    • Ballet, 1955

    • Lithographs; Ballet dancers
    • This is a very early brightly coloured lithograph created with only three colours, the eighth lithograph Bates ever did, in 1955. The couple on the left balances off the two figures on the right. Bates sold this 5th print out of an...
    • Beach Stuff, c.1946

    • Oil paintings; Landscape paintings; Shells (Animal); Shellfish -- Nova Scotia
    • Lismer sets us a dynamic rhythm of organic shapes encircling just inside the frame of the painting. No doubt the beach lore of Nova Scotia, perhaps Cape Breton Island, inspired this work. At this time Lismer created sketches titled Boat, Beach...
    • Black Cherry Tree, 1960

    • Oil paintings; Landscape paintings; Cherry trees -- Quebec (Province) -- Calumet; Barns -- Quebec (Province) -- Calumet
    • A direct response to nature, Black Cherry Tree (1960) celebrates one spectacular black cherry tree in a field. Roberts creates a particularly vibrant and dynamic surface using lively brushwork and different greens, and a unified composition. ...
    • Blakiston Falls, Waterton Park, 1957

    • Oil paintings; Abstract works; Waterfalls -- Alberta -- Waterton Lakes National Park
    • In this highly abstract evocation of Blakiston Falls in Waterton Park, Burton contrasts an abstracted rock cliff with part of the waterfall in colour. Overall he balances the value contrasts of the composition.
    • Buffalo Hunt, 1962

    • Mixed media; Bison hunting -- Alberta; Bison -- Alberta; Horseback riding -- Alberta; Indigenous peoples -- Alberta
    • Tailfeathers depicts a First Nations individual shooting on horseback with bow and arrow buffalo across the slope of a hill. Just prior to this work, Tailfeathers worked on eighteen paintings also depicting Indian life in tempera for the Glenbow...
    • Chief Mountain From Belly River, n.d.

    • Mountains -- Alberta; Landscape paintings; Rivers -- Alberta; Oil paintings
    • Jackson sets up the undulating rhythm of Alberta’s foothills through which the Belly River meanders in early autumn, culminating with the striking shape of Chief Mountain. Varied ochres and directional lines suggest vast space. Indicative of...
    • Composition, 1951

    • Oil paintings
    • This is an optically balanced non-objective work composed of geometrical elements not strictly enforced. The solidity of the black balancing structure, yellow, orange and red elements and the black and white circles optically assert themselves in...
    • Dancers, 1955

    • Lithographs; Dancers; Folk dancing
    • This is a very early coloured lithograph created with only three colours, the seventh lithograph Bates ever did, in 1955. Yet Bates, ever the draftsman, experiments with rhythmic organic abstract figurative shapes evoking dancing. Contour sets up...
    • Elevators At Night, Pincher Creek, c.1947

    • Grain elevators; Grain elevators -- Alberta -- Pincher Creek; Oil paintings; Landscape paintings
    • Three prairie elevators stand like monumental sentinels against a cloudy Big Dipper-studded night sky. Stillness is in the air. Jackson contrasts their architectonic forms along the rail line of this prairie town with the natural rhythm of the...
    • Eroded Land No. 1, 1957

    • Oil paintings; Landscape paintings; Agricultural facilities -- Alberta -- Drumheller; Hills -- Alberta -- Drumheller
    • Bates treats the middle ground in an unusually Cubist manner analyzing the farm buildings into angular planes and assembling them. In this bold work, he judiciously places the three primary colours in foreground, distant hills and sky contrasting...
    • Farm, St. Fidele, P.Q., n.d.

    • Oil paintings; Landscape paintings; Croplands -- Quebec (Province) -- St. Fidele; Fences -- Quebec (Province) -- St. Fidele
    • Jackson places a fence thrusting up and diagonally into the painting from the left. This work of ochre fields and bushes is probably a preparatory sketch for a larger work.
    • Gaspe Coast, 1947

    • Oil paintings; Fishing boats -- Quebec (Province); Coastlines -- Quebec (Province); Beaches -- Quebec (Province)
    • Hyndman gives the rhythmic sweep of the St. Lawrence River coming in along the coast of the Gaspe Peninsula in Quebec, and a fisherman attending to his equipment in this pastoral scene.
    • Gaspe Town, n.d.

    • Oil paintings; Abstract works; Houses -- Quebec (Province); Cities and towns -- Quebec (Province)
    • Haworth highly abstracts the town’s buildings arcing around a bay into rectilinear coloured shapes, patterns of lines and the shapes’ reflections in the bay. This work reflects Haworth’s extensive experience with stained glass.
    • Girl's Head, n.d.

    • Oil paintings; Portrait paintings
    • Reflecting a balance of warm and cool, and of complementary colours against a neutral background, Girl’s Head shows a pensive young woman in purple shadow. The loose, agitated brushwork in her hair and her fixated eyes give her a slightly...
