If you are in Toronto, there is a special exhibit at the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO). The exhibit, called Drama and Desire – Artists and the Theatre, takes place from June 19 to September 26, 2010. I was excited when I received the recent edition of the AGO’s journal, Art Matters. The journal included 2 paintings that I have studied. Degas’ painting The Orchestra at the Opera is a wonderful example of Degas’ compositional skill. The image shows his technique to achieve unity by connecting the dark colours (value) in the orchestra. He connected the orchestra and the stage with the top of the musical instrument and the conductor's head. The second image in AGO’s journal was David’s painting, The Oath of the Horatii. This painting shows David’s skill at perspective, composition and modeling with colours and values. There will be over 100 paintings, drawings and maquettes. There are also works by Delacroix, Ingres, William Blake, Toulouse-Lautrec, Edouard Vuillard and Aubrey Beardsley. The AGO is the only North American site. I hope you will join me in viewing this exciting exhibit and also take the opportunity to see my art. (The link is on this site.)
