University of Regina and Wakeling Galleries

Curated by University of Regina art historian Dr. Francesco Freddolini and Head Curator Timothy Long, Multiple Lives of Drawings takes as its subject the MacKenzie’s small but exquisite collection of European drawings from 1500 to 1800. Drawing primarily from Italian examples, the exhibition showcases how drawing was a shared medium and practice both north and south of the Alps throughout the Renaissance and Baroque. Original research by the curators, including fresh attributions for a number of the drawings, has resulted in several important discoveries that cast light on the social life of both the artists and their multi-faceted graphic production.
