A Modern Landscape: Takao Tanabe
West Vancouver Art Museum, West Vancouver, BC - To Jul 17
At the venerable age of 95, Takao Tanabe is the éminence grise of Canadian painting. His acclaimed career spans colourful abstractions of the 1950s and ’60s, reductive Prairie landscapes of the 1970s, and highly detailed, immaculately executed West Coast scenes of the past 40 years. Each of these major phases is represented in an exhibition of paintings and prints drawn from the collection of the West Vancouver Art Museum along with other public and private collections .
