Collection Focus: Art Gallery of Ontario. We’re excited to represent hundreds of new images from the Art Gallery of Ontario for licensing and reproduction. Located in the heart of Toronto, the AGO comprises more than 25,000 works of art spanning over 1,000 years, and houses the world’s largest collection of Canadian art. Founded in 1900, the Gallery also boasts many European, American, Oceanic and African masterpieces, prints and an extensive photography collection; but the stars of the show are the local works, with a focus on Toronto and Ontario, including First Nation and Inuit artists. 
 
The photography collection includes rare prints by Linnaeus Tripe, who travelled to Myanmar and British India in the 1850s and took some very atmospheric shots of temples. There is also a spectacular sunlight-on-water scene by Gustave Le Gray from the same period, which looks like Turner copied.
