AGO: Highlights from the Collection of the Art Gallery of Ontario showcases more than 300 of the Gallery’s most significant pieces, from The Malmesbury Châsse to Arnaud Maggs’s After Nadar photographs. Including full page images of the work, photographs of the works on display, this publication provides a unique opportunity for visitors and art collectors to explore the collection and the interesting architecture of the gallery space that was newly renovated in 2008.
Over the last decade, the Gallery’s world-renowned collection has grown immeasurably, with many individuals and families gifting pieces to celebrate the opening of the AGO’s new building in November 2008. Now readers have the chance to explore many of these acquisitions — including photographs, First Nations objects, African art and pieces from the Thomson Collection — in print form. The publication also celebrates the unique architecture and inviting gallery spaces of the new AGO.
