Discover the Works in the National Gallery Canada Collection through Previously Unpublished Articles
Volume VI of the Review includes six articles, including one co-written by the Gallery’s chief curator, David Franklin, and its chief conservator, Stephen Gritt.
ONTARIO.- Volume VI of the National Gallery of Canada Review is now available for purchase by professionals, researchers, and students in art history and the visual arts, as well as everyone interested in culture. Published annually since 2003, the Review brings together an eclectic selection of articles about the works acquired for the collection of the National Gallery of Canada (NGC). This bilingual publication is for sale for $25 at the NGC Bookstore and at the Gallery’s virtual boutique.

Volume VI of the Review includes six articles, including one co-written by the Gallery’s chief curator, David Franklin, and its chief conservator, Stephen Gritt. These two experts throw into doubt the identity of the artist who painted The Penitent Saint Jerome in His Study. The painting is attributed to Pensionante del Saraceni, an unknown man whom Franklin and Gritt propose may have been Italian after all, and not an anonymous traveller from afar.

The opportunity to share such theories are what make the Review an exciting publication, says Franklin. “It might take a hundred years, but one hopes that someone one day will use that information as part of the jigsaw puzzle in cracking this enigma.”

Three more articles were penned by Gallery curators. René Villeneuve shares the highlights of his research on a recently discovered painting by 19th-century Québécois artist Antoine Plamondon; Sonia Couturier sheds new light on a recent Gallery acquisition, a drawing by Jean-François Thomas, known as Thomas de Thomon; and John Collins tells us about the methods used by Claude Monet during his stay at Étretat in the 1880s.

The Review also includes articles about the little-known sketchbooks of 19th-century Montreal artist Henry Sandham and the attribution of Pierre Parrocel’s drawing The Flood to Henri de Favanne.
