Since the arrival of Guy Cogeval as director, now back in France with a Presidency to the Musée d’Orsay, the fine arts museum of Montreal has seen its exhibition calendar thicken with more daring and successful shows. Nathalie Bondil, who has now replaced him has followed in his footsteps, promoting forgotten talents, implementing a brilliant and diverse policy of acquisitions and creating shows that take new perspectives on great artists, broaden the museum’s grasp, and illuminate unknown types of art and regions. These new policies have certainly placed the museum on the international map.
Like most Fine Arts Museums created in the mid 19th century their permanent collection policy is very encyclopedic encompassing pretty much everything - furniture, painting, sculpture, costume, design - from every time period -going all the way back to BCE to today - and culture - Western, Native, African, South American. The museum, however, has a strong collection of Quebecois and Canadian art (spanning from the 16th century to today), a number of important Group of Seven works, a huge collection of Napoleonic 'things,' Inuit and Amerindian Art and recently has acquired a number of contemporary art objects from Europe, Japan, America, China and Canada.(read less)
