French Furniture and Rodin Work Donated by the Trust is on Display at Winnipeg Art Gallery
As part of the Winnipeg Art Gallery’s summer blockbuster exhibition “French Moderns: Monet to Matisse, 1850-1950,” all the French (mostly) Empire furniture donated by The Salgo Trust for Education in 2011 will be on display from 16 June to 9 September 2018, along with masterpieces of French modern art form the Brooklyn Museum. The Winnipeg Art Gallery is also showing modern works from their own collection in this exhibition curated by WAG Director Dr. Stephen Borys, including the Rodin bronze “Danaïd” that The Salgo Trust donated to the WAG. This bronze version of the 1889 masterpiece is accompanied by a marble version of the same work lent by the Brooklyn Museum. An added bonus is that the fine Chinese side table donated to the WAG by the Trust is also on display, as part of the related exhibition “Organic,” curated by Jamie Isaac.
