Beaverbrook Art Gallery

Beaverbrook Art Gallery Review

A lasting gift of the late Lord Beaverbrook, born and raised in New Brunswick before building his UK media empire, this gallery could hold its head high in the company of some of the smaller European galleries. It contains a significant collection of Canadian, American, and British masterworks that rivals many major Canadian galleries. Salvador Dalí's gigantic painting Santiago el Grande has always been the star, but a rotation of avant-garde Canadian paintings now shares pride of place. The McCain "gallery-within-a-gallery" is devoted to the finest Atlantic Canadian artists. From 2013 to 2016, 75 important works will not be on view here—as part of the "Masterworks of the Beaverbrook Art Gallery" exhibition, they will be touring North American galleries.
