Lionel LeMoine FitzGerald, Bust of a Man, 1909. Collection of the Winnipeg Art Gallery; Gift from the Douglas M. Duncan Collection. G-70-96

Also in May, the WAG’s collection of modern Canadian art expands significantly with a second donation from the late Toronto art dealer Douglas Duncan (1902–1968).

Duncan’s first important donations to the Gallery were in 1962. The 1970 donation of works from Duncan’s estate of several hundred works by Lionel LeMoine FitzGerald (1890–1956), including rare early drawings, provides an important context from which to understand his mature work and chart his development.
