Works on paper comprise nearly half of the WAG collection: 5,000 drawings and more than 7,000 prints.

The collection includes excellent examples ranging from Italian and Dutch Baroque ink drawings to contemporary Inuit stonecuts. An important subset of watercolours and ink drawings by artists such as Peter Rindisabacher, William Hind, and Frances Hopkins constitute vital documentation of life in Manitoba in the 19th century. The WAG’s later collection includes work by significant Canadian artists such as Ozias Leduc, Carl Schaefer, Ernst Lindner, and David Blackwood. There is also a sizeable collection of contemporary works on paper, including the collages of Paul Butler and Simon Hughes, and watercolours of Marcel Dzama. The WAG also holds a growing collection of contemporary Inuit drawing, including the work of Shuvani Ashoona, Tim Pitsiulak, Ningiukulu Teevee, and Annie Pootoogook.
