Publisher's Comments

Featuring some of Canada's foremost Baroque paintings, Illuminations studies the Baroque fascination with theatricality and visual spectacle in religious, mythological, and popular imagery. It explores how seventeenth-century audiences were confronted with pictures that frequently broke conventions by manipulating the sources and meaning of light while depicting all types of subjects.

Accompanies a travelling exhibition opening at the Art Gallery of Hamilton (Hamilton): February 28-May 31, 2015 and then moving to the Art Gallery of Alberta (Edmonton), June 26-October 12, 2015.
