McIntosh Gallery Art & Travel Committee Presents a Day Trip to the AGO

Wednesday, June 12, 2024
Toronto, ON

This day trip will feature a visit and tour of the AGO exhibitions Making Her Mark: A History of Women Artists in Europe, 1400-1800 & Tissot, Women and Time.

Making Her Mark brings together more than 230 objects from royal portraits to metal work, ceramics, textiles, and cabinetry, to demonstrating the ways women contributed to the visual arts of Europe. Featuring the work of well-known artists Sofonisba Anguissola, Artemisia Gentileschi, Judith Leyster, Luisa Roldán, Rosalba Carriera, and Rachel Ruysch, and among others, the exhibition invites us to reconsider what we think we know about European art history.

Tissot, Women and Time explores the many ways that the French artist James Tissot represented modern women and envisioned their relationship to time during the last decades of the nineteenth century. This exhibition presents two of the AGO’s most beloved Tissot paintings alongside a selection of more than 40 works on paper. Best known for his paintings of fashionable figures, Tissot began his career in Paris. He moved to London in 1871 after fighting in the FrancoPrussian War, and became a popular painter of Victorian scenes, particularly those showing young women, before returning to France in 1882.
