About this title


Taking their name from the downtown street in Montreal where members shared a studio in the early 1920s, The Beaver Hall Group were early adopters of new modernistic approaches to painting and explored their potential within a variety of genres, including portrait, still life, landscape and prescient scenes of urbanity. As well as providing an artistic window into the modern lives of Canadians during this transformational period of history, as a collective The Beaver Hall Group are exceptional for their inclusion of female artists as core members. Initially comprising of both genders, the group would become an all-female collective that includes some of Canada’s most celebrated modern painters.

Through a series of comprehensive contextual essays Le Groupe de Beaver Hall, Une Modernité Des Années 1920 À Montréal interweaves the work of this pioneering artistic collective within a broader narrative of the arts in the first half of the twentieth century. Exploring the groups’ greater role in the modernity of Canada and more specifically the cultural context of Montreal the book takes on core themes such as the rise of the metropolis, juxtapositions between economic progress and cultural development, and the impact of gender on critical approaches to both artists and their work.

Le Groupe de Beaver Hall, Une Modernité Des Années 1920 À Montréal sits alongside a major exhibition and is published in partnership with the Montreal Museum of Fine Art.
