Although it does hold some notable works by American and European artists, the National Gallery of Canada’s main focus is Canadian art. Its contemporary art collection even includes some pieces from Andy Warhol. The Canadian collection, which is the nation’s most compressive, includes artwork by Emily Carr, Louis-Philippe Hébert, Alex Colville, Tom Thomson and Jack Bush. The gallery is recognised today for the spider sculpture outside, which is titled Maman and was created by Louise Bourgeois.
