Canadian Art Spring Season 2018

Linda Rodeck Introduces our Spring 2018 Canadian Art Season.

For centuries, trading merchandise from far and wide has proven lucrative to industrious merchants, particularly those who specialized in luxurious or rare goods. But throughout history such trade has also generated significant intellectual, spiritual and philosophical dividends.
 
I can't help thinking about the great Spice Routes and Silk Roads when I think of auction season. Each spring and fall, an auction house will assemble thousands of precious items, brought from all over the world and from all time periods. It wasn't so long ago, for example, that Waddington's sold a woolly mammoth tusk! These items exhibit a rare beauty which is often the primary reason they are desired but there are also magnificent stories that attach themselves to objects.  
 
Waddington's Spring 2018 Canadian art sale, which is comprised of 160 lots, represents 160 amazing creation stories, biographies or histories about each lot's maker, their subject, their execution, their owners both prior and current, and their significance in the past, present and future. Each sale is a fascinating installment in the story of Canadian art-making and collecting.
 
Join us on a journey of discovery this season by reading some of the stories you will find in our Canadian Art auction catalogue or stop by our previews to hear some of the wonderful anecdotes our specialists can provide in person.
