In Jan: A Miller Brittain Masterpiece

The Beaverbrook Art Gallery holds a significant collection of Miller Brittain works, and one of the finest is a recent gift of his 1961 portrait of renowned concert pianist Margaret Ann Ireland. This deeply introspective portrait was featured in the 1981 National Film Board film “Miller Brittain,” with the late Margaret Ann Ireland discussing the painting’s importance in her life at a critical time.

With its deeply introspective take on the sitter, along with the shards of mirror intentionally adhered to the canvas surface at her forehead and hands, the painting is a sublime example of the emotive quality of Brittain’s studies of the human condition.
