The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts is the repository of one of the most important graphic arts collections in Canada.

Encompassing prints, drawings and photographs that survey over five centuries of graphic achievement and include masterpieces by a broad diversity of artists spanning the history of European and North American art.

Contemporary works constitute the main part of the Museum’s photographic collection, which comprises over 2,500 photos from Canada, the United States, Europe, Africa and Asia. In recent years, the Museum’s collection has been considerable enlarged by numerous documentary works executed by Quebec photographers.

As the Museum had focussed on acquiring works that documented the majorstages of the medium’s development, the photographic collection will soon benefit by additional exhibition space.
