Estate of Margaret Wade Labarge donates art collection to the National Gallery of Canada

Thanks to a generous gift from the collection of the former medieval historian, writer, lecturer and Order of Canada recipient Dr. Margaret Wade Labarge (1916-2009), the National Gallery of Canada has acquired four prints by Dutch artist Rembrandt van Rijn, two by German artist Albrecht Dürer, and others by artists David Young Cameron, Giovanni Battista Piranesi and James McNeill Whistler. All nine are featured in the National Gallery’s exhibition Art of the Print: Recent Acquisitions from Rembrandt to Picasso, on view until January 2, 2011.
