Winnipeg Art GalleryThe Winnipeg Art Gallery will be showcasing some of the most well-known art pieces of all time in a new exhibition this spring.

100 Masters: Only in Canada will open May 11 and include works from Rembrandt, Gainsborough, Van Gogh, Monet, Picasso, and Warhol. The pieces have been collected from 30 museums and lent out to create the largest exhibition in the WAG’s history.

“The wonderful tradition of museums sending their best pieces to celebrate the opening or anniversary of a sister institution is longstanding,” said Dr. Stephen Borys, WAG director and CEO.

The show will be augmented by 10 pieces from the WAG’s own collection of over 26,000 works.

Tickets are available now at the museums’ front risk ranging from $10 to $55 (for a family). Admission includes free audio tour and commemorative booklet.
