On tour from the Brooklyn Museum of Art, French Moderns includes landscapes, still lifes, portraits and nudes by a raft of famed artists, including Pierre Bonnard, Paul Cézanne, Marc Chagall, Edgar Degas and, yes, Claude Monet and Pablo Picasso. Complementing this travelling show is Affinities: Canadian Artists and France, which focuses on the impact of French art and culture over the past 120 years on Canadian artists, from Emily Carr to Lucy Hogg and from J.W. Morrice to Rodney Graham.
