Two works by Caroline Monnet poetically address matters of the global, international and transnational from an Indigenous framework.
Clutching a blanket around her frame, Cornelius Krieghoff’s Moccasin Seller of c.1853–63 treks through a frozen landscape to sell her moccasins to the tourists and inhabitants of Quebec’s burgeoning cities.
In her work, Elizabeth McIntosh likes to mix planning and improvisation to create paintings that, for her, are personal journeys of discovery.
There is a particular animal that runs through the National Gallery of Canada, with all the spirit and vigour that one would expect.
Sophie Ristelhueber is known for her depiction of landscape in the aftermath of conflict. Her work "WB" speaks effectively to the role of art in contemporary geopolitics.

Associated with many avant-garde movements throughout his career, the artist and poet Francis Picabia never adhered to one movement. His sarcastic and playful view on life is a common theme.
