Toronto’s main symbols and popular attractions are surrounded by gracile giant-tall skyscrapers in the heart of the largest Canadian city. Here and there, curious tourists are dashing about, some in search of impressions, others of souvenirs, but some leisurely enjoy the most expressive art form, the priceless paintings of one of the largest art museums in North America. Besides, hardly anyone can pass by the unique building of the Art Gallery of Ontario, created by the world-famous architect Frank Gehry, leaving it unnoticed.

The four-floor building of glass and plastic will impress you both with its exteriors and interiors. It occupies 45,000 square meters and has more than a hundred spacious halls, not to mention the luxurious gallery collection. Here you can see the artworks of the international significance of the following great painters of the past: Tintoretto and Rembrandt, Peter Paul Rubens and Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Claude Monet and Edgar Degas, Pablo Picasso and Paul Gauguin, as well as great vibrant paintings by legendary Vincent van Gogh. The following masters represent the later period: Franz Kline and Mark Rothko, the avant-garde artist Marc Chagall and the unparalleled genius of surrealism Salvador Dali. A separate exhibition is dedicated to Canadian artists: Françoise Sullivan, Jeff Wall, Shirley Wiitasalo, and the world-famous sculptor Henry Spencer Moore.

Besides, only here you can see so many artworks of the indigenous peoples of America, and rare exhibits of the peoples of the Chukchi Peninsula, made in “the Chukchi carved bone” technique. All in all, the collection of the Art Gallery of Ontario has more than 80,000 works of art: paintings and drawings, engravings and photos, as well as sculptures and installations, covering a considerable period from the 1st century AD to the present.

Address: 317 Dundas St W
