The WAG announces the acquisition of a rare canvas by Canadian landscape painter Tom Thomson (1877–1917). The WAG raised $1.15 million for Early Snow, with significant funding assistance coming from the Cultural Properties Review Board, Government of Canada. The painting—one of only 33 works Thomson painted on canvas over his short career—was created one year before the artist’s death. It is the centerpiece of the exhibition The View from Here: Selections from the Canadian Historical Collection.]
