Some images from the opening of the transformed Art Gallery of Ontario on Thursday. The building has been renovated inside and out by 'starchitect', and Toronto son, Frank Gehry (pictured second from bottom, speaking at the press conference).

Much of the new gallery space created in the renovation has been filled with work from The Thomson Collection, which includes Rubens' Massacre of the Innocents, as seen in the last shot above.

    Your images are far more flattering than the NYT presentation...

    The Rubens is a powerful installation.
    Well done Toronto, well done Mute.

    You have captured it very nicely!

    Amazing lighting and contrast in the last image. You also do a great job with curves and distortion in the first images.
