The collection of work by artists of national significance with connections to Winnipeg and Manitoba is particularly strong: among them are Peter Rindisbacher, Mary Ritter Hamilton, W.J. Phillips, L.L. FitzGerald, Bertram Brooker, William Kurelek, and Ivan Eyre. The WAG is also home to important works by 19th century painters Cornelius Kreighoff, George Reid, and Homer Watson; modern Canadian landscape works by Tom Thomson, Emily Carr, and the Group of Seven; figurative modernists such as J.W. Morrice, David Milne, Elizabeth Wyn Wood, Prudence Heward, and Christiane Pflug; and choice examples of mid-century abstract modernists such as by Jean-Paul Riopelle, Paul-Emile Borduas, and Jack Bush.
