New home for Ross Woodman’s Books


We were recently approached by the executors of Dr. Ross Woodman’s estate about his extensive book collection. Ross Woodman was a Romantics professor at Western University, enthusiastic art collector and good friend of the gallery who loved spending time talking about art and literature.

We accepted the offer to take Ross’s 500 books and have now re-organized three major bookshelves in the gallery to accommodate our large and Ross’s extensive collection of art books and art catalogues.

Canadian art and artists are now stored in the middle gallery and Jennie’s office, while Michael’s office houses an incredible survey of International artists and movements, ranging from the Renaissance to Pop-Art, to books on collector and gallery collections, to Islamic and Asian art and probably the largest collection of books on Picasso in South-Western Ontario!
