Beaverbrook Art Gallery

The Beaverbrook Art Gallery is the provincial art gallery of New Brunswick.
The Beaverbrook Art Gallery, a gift to the people of New Brunswick from Lord Beaverbrook (Sir Max Aitken), features works by Canadian and British artists and a unique sample of works from international artists. The Gallery exhibits an exciting mix of works from its own collection as well as works and exhibitions on loan from other institutions. The Gallery's icon, Salvador Dalí's Santiago el Grande is on permanent display.

Permanent Collection

The Gallery has an extensive collection of paintings by Cornelius Krieghoff(1815-1872) which are permanently on display. Our holding by expatriate Canadian Impressionist, James Wilson Morrice (1865-1924), is another important aspect of our collection. New Brunswick landscape paintings and works on paper by artists such as Anthony Flower (1792-1875), George T. Taylor (1838-1913), and George Neilson Smith (1789-1854) are important parts of the Gallery's holdings of nineteenth-century Canadian art.
Also in the permanent collection are works of art by members of the Group of Seven, Emily Carr and David Milne, as well as other twentieth-century artists such as Paul-Emile Borduas, Jean-Paul Riopelle, Jack Bush, Harold Feist, Harold Klunder and John Boyle.
The Gallery is internationally known for its outstanding collection of British paintings from the Elizabethan to the modern era, including paintings by Thomas Gainsborough, Sir Joshua Reynolds, J.M.W. Turner and John Constable. Modern British art is represented by the work of Augustus John, Sir Stanley Spencer, Walter Sickert and Graham Sutherland, including Sutherland's preparatory sketches for his famous portrait of Winston Churchill.
The Gallery holds a fine collection of late Renaissance paintings, Aubusson and Gobelin tapestries, and European furniture and decorative arts, including the Pillow Porcelain collection. The sculpture collection includes work by British artist Jonathan Kenworthy, Acadian artist Marie-Hélène Allain and John Greer.
