Established in 1922 with the mandate to support living artists, the Hart House Art Collection comprises world-renowned works by Canadian artists.
Ranging from ancient objects to 20th Century art, including drawings by Picasso and Matisse, the 500-piece collection’s particular focus is on Medieval art and Byzantine icons.
The collection is the oldest on campus and focuses on Canadian art, and its most important pieces are by the Group of Seven and some of their forerunners.
Eclectic and wide-ranging, many works are installed throughout campus to enhance the working and teaching environment of the university.
