Travel Post 6: Canada

Canada! In Lausanne!

We went to see the Canada and Impressionism: New Horizons exhibit at the Fondation de l’Hermitage in Lausanne (luckily before it closed temporarily due to the lockdown).

Here are some of my favourites:

Thaw, Arthabaska by Marc-Aurele de Foy Suzor-Cote

La rue de Lagauchetière by J-C Franchère

Gitwangak by Emily Carr

Snow II by Lawren Harris

Winter Afternoon, City Street, Toronto OR Sunday Morning by Lawren Harris

Opulent October by Tom Thomson

Moonlight, Corner Store, Toronto

Saint Patrick's Church, Montreal by Robert Pilot

A Load of Fence Posts by Lawren Harris

Autumn in France by Emily Carr

Originals are on my instagram post.

Right now there are lots of museums you cam visit virtually.

Do you have a favourite recent exhibit?


Like all the snow pictures. Will keep me cool as we head into summer!
Hi Deniz - I recognised the first Emily Carr ... but hadn't seen the French one - though I could probably guess it was by her. The other artists I don't know. So glad you were able to get into the exhibition before it closed - I made a few forays in February and early March ... need to write them up (sometime). Take care ... Hilary

Nice paintings--I really like the first two (or maybe I'm just really missing snow).

Thanks so much! I'm still really grateful that we got to see this before we started staying home -- I haven't left the house (and garden) since 16 March! My last outing was to the park down the road on 15 March...

Deniz, re-your post on my blog

Check out this resource from Vanderbilt University:

Wonderful art stirring my memories of Eastern Canada - although, different eras. How near to Lausanne do you live, Deniz? My mother, sister, and her daughter all went to school there, so I've been there a few times.
Thank you, Deniz, for this little slice of normalcy in a crazy mixed up world. I would love to jump into the picture with the horse and lose myself in that world. Or in the Winter Afternoon in Toronto world. I don’t care for this world much.

Very close, Roland! We're about 25 minutes away by train. Lausanne is fun to visit, hope you can make it over sometime!
Deniz Bevan said…
Aww, thanks Taylor :-)

Sadly, Deniz, I live in the US now and due to my disability, I no longer go far. My niece lives on the French side of Lac Leman in St Gingolph, so I wish I could visit her.

I'll wave to her from across the water!
