Join the Agnes Etherington Art Centre on April 12, 12:15pm for Deep Looking: Tom Thomson? The Art of Authentication. This online event allows participants to slow down and observe artworks, including over forty by The Group of Seven's Tom Thomson.
"The exhibition Tom Thomson? The Art of Authentication explores how artworks are authenticated. During his brief six-year career as a painter, Tom Thomson (1877–1917) produced hundreds of oil sketches and a handful of canvases that responded to the mid-northern Ontario landscape. In the century following his death, he has been the subject of national myth-making and critical myth-dismantling. Perhaps one of the most recognized historical painters in Canada, he is also one of the most copied."
The event is free with registration.
