This unique touring exhibition celebrated the Canadiana collection of Peter Winkworth. Winkworth,was a Canadian-born collector who, until his death on August 20, 2005, resided in Britain, and he had a driving passion for early Canadian art and the preservation of Canada’s heritage. He began building his collection some forty-five years ago during which time he amassed one of the largest private collections of Canadiana. The quality and range of the collection attests to his expertise and careful research in selecting art, books and historical documents that provide a valuable record of Canada over a period of four centuries.
Loyal She Remains drew on this collection to present approximately seventy paintings, drawings and prints relevant to the Province of Ontario and its history. Included are works by many well-known artists, including Paul Kane, Frances Anne Hopkins, James Pattison Cockburn, and Frederick Arthur Verner. The Winkworth collection is enhanced by a selection of paintings, rare books, and documents drawn from the permanent holdings of Library and Archives Canada.
