Antoine Plamondon (1804-1895): Milestones of an Artistic Journey

June 17, 2006 - September 3, 2006

AWE Gallery

The Art Gallery of Windsor is pleased to present a rare opportunity to view more than forty paintings by Antoine Plamondon (1804-95), one of the greatest artists of 19th-century Quebec. Known as the preeminent Canadian painter in the popular and refined Neo-Classical style, the exhibition reflects Plamondon’s talent as a portraitist and as a copyist of genre scenes and religious canvases.

The works in this exhibition has been selected from many public museums and galleries, church organizations, and private collections. The exhibition marks the 200th anniversary of Plamondon’s birth, and features several works that have only recently undergone major restoration, including major portraits of St. Francis Xavier (18-30-35) St. Cecilia (1878), and another version of Still Life with Apples and Grapes (1866).
