Title
Aux origines du Musée des beaux-arts de Montréal : la foundation de l’Art Association of Montreal en 1860
Abstract
In early 1860, with the announcement that the Prince of Wales was coming to Montreal to open the Victoria Bridge, and with work underway on Montreal’s Crystal Palace to house industrial exhibitions, the city’s lack of amenities for the arts was apparent. On January 11, 1860, twenty-three English-speaking gentlemen gathered at the studio of photographer William Notman with the intention of establishing an Association for the Encouragement of the Fine Arts, later to become the Art Association of Montreal. A public subscription was undertaken and 205 people donated to the Association. Of these founding members, 193 were English-speaking.
