Paterson Ewen (1925-2002) is one of Canada’s most acclaimed painters. Throughout his career Ewen’s search has been to make the observed world tangible and real. His work stands as a testimony to the cycles of nature, its terror and its beauty.  Matthew Teitelbaum, AGO Director and CEO, as well and curator of the exhibition Paterson Ewen: Inspiration and Influence will place Ewen in the context of his times and highlight his influences and enthusiasms. He will also reveal the full breadth of the AGO’s holdings.
