Over the course of his career, David Milne (1882-1953) recorded his beliefs about artmaking and his own artistic practice. In identifying what was at the core of an individual’s creativity, the term he deemed most appropriate for describing artistic impetus was feeling.  Milne wrote extensively about his work, and his inspiration to explore other mediums to support his painting helped foster new considerations in his approach to his art-making; such as the dry-point printmaking efforts that provided “blazes along the trail.” This exhibition presents a selection of works from core areas of Milne’s artistic practice in oil painting, watercolours, and dry-point prints. All works have been drawn from the Art Gallery of Windsor’s permanent collection. 

Exhibition organized by the Art Gallery of Windsor, curated by Christopher Finn.
