A Model in the Studio - Montreal 1880 to 1950

A Model in the Studio - Montreal 1880 to 1950

March 05, 2019

Often censured and scorned in this country, and seldom exhibited, live model representation usually is seen in terms of apprenticeship, or something somewhat predetermined. Works from the Academy and artist studios differ, however, with the model often revealing shamelessly by the deeply conservative standards of the day…

Most of the works selected for the exhibition A Model in the Studio have never before been shown or are new acquisitions. They demonstrate the impact of a creative and training process that was once the foundation of all representations of the human body. From the quick sketch to the completed drawing, something of the artist’s personality is revealed in the lines of the models depicted. Featured here are many graphic artworks, as well as a few pochades and sculptures, that were all executed between the late 19th century and mid-20th century by some thirty artists – including five women – who worked in Montreal.

An exhibition organized by the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts.

A Model in the Studio, Montreal 1880-1950: New Acquisitions is curated by Jacques Des Rochers, curator of Quebec and Canadian Art (before 1945), MMFA.

Exhibition Dates: Until 26th May 2019

Exhibition Hours: 10am –  5pm Tuesday to Sunday. Open until 9pm on Wednesday. Closed Monday. 

Venue:  Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, 1380 Sherbrooke Street West
Jean-Noël Desmarais Pavilion, Montreal.
