This exhibition has finished.
This exhibition documents an artistic career that spanned the first half of the 20th century, bringing together more than ninety works in oil and watercolour, never-before-exhibited photographs and drawings by the artist, and memorabilia collected by Milne during his time in Europe as an official war artist.
Arranged chronologically and opographically, the exhibition follows Milne’s artistic
development as he moved from the bustling sidewalks of New York to the war-torn
landscapes of northern France and back again to the woods, fields and skies of the northeastern US and Canada. It will document the change in Milne’s approach as he moved from the Post-Impressionist style of his New York years, with its vivid colours and dynamic brushstrokes, to the more distilled visual language of his later work.
The exhibition concludes with a series of elemental still-life studies and sky paintings made during Milne’s time at remote Six Mile Lake.
