Esther Trépanier, Professor of Art History, Université du Québec à Montréal

Though this “globe-trotting artist” is well represented in the galleries of Quebec and Canadian Art in the Claire and Marc Bourgie Pavilion, the Museum also has a number of winter landscapes not usually on display and done during his visits to Canada. They will serve as a starting point for some observations about what distinguishes Morrice’s take on the winter landscape and some questions about what distinguishes him from his colleagues who are more generally associated with Canadian regionalism and nationalism.

From the series ”Quand l’œuvre sort de sa réserve”

Activity free of charge. Optional pass reservation: in order to guarantee admission to the lectures, you may reserve a numbered seat in exchange for a service charge. One hour before the event, passes for any remaining seats will be given out free of charge on a first-come, first-served basis.

THE ECHOES OF BATTLE
THE ECHOES OF BATTLE
Friday February 23 2018 - 18:30
Duration : 1h 15

Daniel Propper is an expert on the music of the Napoleonic era. His album L’Écho des batailles is the result of painstaking historical and musical research, rewarded in 2012 by the Fondation Napoléon. This fascinating concert lifts the veil on works that have fallen into obscurity, historically overshadowed by the great revolutionary battles they sought to illustrate through music.

Daniel Propper will perform on the historic Erard piano (1859) and on a the Steinway from Bourgie Hall’s instrument collection.

Avoid the crowds thanks to pre-concert guided tours given outside the Museum’s opening hours! Select the Expo+Concert option. 

Guide tour of the Napoleon – The Imperial Househould exhibition at 5 p.m.

Welcome to the Museum’s School of art!

Exceptionally, this workshop will take place over two Saturdays, February, 24 and March, 3

9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and 1:30 to 4:30 p.m.

The ancient art of batik is a fascinating medium of wax-resist dying that was used on many continents but perfected in Indonesia. In this workshop, you’ll learn the basic techniques by creating a scarf, a name-card folder or some other functional object, inspired by the colourful works in the Canadian collections. You’ll also experiment with different fabrics. Participants are free to bring their own material, provided it’s natural, that is, 100% cotton, silk, linen or bamboo.

The instructor will sell the materials for a reasonable price.  The participants must bring their own fabric, but it must be natural- 100% silk, linen, cotton or bamboo

Instructor: Avy Loftus, Batik Artist and Art Educator
