SELECTED WORKS BY
YORK WILSON, JOHN MARTIN ALFSEN
AND GRANT MACDONALD
This selection of works from the Dance Collection Danse visual art collection features three Canadian visual artists and their fascination with the dancing form. All made in the mid-20th century, these drawings and paintings were created during a seminal moment in the development of ballet in Canada as the art form transitioned from an amateur pursuit to a professional scene that reflected Canada’s growing cultural nationalism. Peppered with artifacts and costumes, this exhibit celebrates the growth of ballet in Canada as seen through the visual artist’s eye.
