Lakes of the Rocky Mountains: As Seen by Catharine and Peter

Lakes of the Rocky Mountains

As Seen by Catharine and Peter

To this day, the lakes of the Canadian Rocky Mountains are admired by people from all over the world. They travel far and wide to have just a glimpse of the kaleidoscope of colours that they provide. Catharine and Peter showed their admiration through their sketches and paintings.

A wide variety of their paintings are now on view at the museum in our latest exhibition, Artistry Revealed: Peter Whyte, Catharine Robb Whyte and Their Contemporaries. This show is on until October 21st in our main gallery.
