Marc-Aurèle de Foy Suzor-Coté

The Art Lover

1899
After the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts was founded, artists experienced elevated social prestige and an increased interest in their work and processes. As a result, Canadian artists turned to painting images of their studios. Here, Suzor-Coté offers a rare glimpse into the world of an art collector, who sits surrounded by works in an artist's studio.
