Mary Wrinch: Painted from Life

Event Website

Like most historical women artists, Wrinch was not fully acknowledged during her lifetime. In addition to highlighting a collection of unique miniature portraits that have never been shown,ย Mary Wrinch: Painted from Lifeย will shed light on a lesser-known, yet highly influential Toronto artist. The AGO and AWE are invested in filling gaps of representation and this exhibition is one such occasion to address such lacunae. This exhibition centres on a collection of 19 watercolour miniature portraits on ivory, which, prior to the AGOโ€™s 2020 exhibition, have never been shown to the public. These will be complemented by two watercolour on ivory paintings by Mary Wrinch from AWEโ€™s collection. The miniatures demonstrate the breadth of talent the artist possessed, her command of colour, and the risks she took throughout her career. Subthemes will include Wrinchโ€™s technical process of miniature painting and questions around the ethical display of ivory by institutions.
