Format: Hardcover
When I first saw this book I thought, "Great, maybe someone has finally done an A.Y. Jackson book that does him justice". So far no one has given us a definitive biography with lots of high quality color reproductions of his best paintings. Wayne Larsen has definitely written the definitive biography---but when it comes to the quality of the pictures---sorry folks, this book is a big disappointment. In this day of digital color photography and printing, this should have been the main priority in a major art book about a Canadian art pioneer. I've seen some really high quality Group of Seven/Tom Thomson etc. editions (David Silcox book gets 5 stars) where this was properly done--- so why on earth would the author and publisher not make the same effort for this book? Frankly, the color reproduction quality is inexcusably second-rate. There are far too few paintings as well, when there should be twice as many. There are a number of really excellent Jacksons in museums and private collections that should have been included. For anyone who wants to learn about Jackson's art---look elsewhere, as I said above, David Silcox' book is infinitely better. Silcox has lots of really fine Jacksons reproduced in high quality color. If you only want to know the details of Jackson's personal life, then that's all this book is really good for. It could have been so much better. Three stars.

Beautiful artwork! Oct. 21 2011
By Tailgater - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I have always loved A.Y Jackson and his artwork. 'Red Maple' is my favorite piece from his collection. I recently bought one, had it framed and it is now in my family room above my couch. I love it.
Good but not Great April 10 2011
By John Berry - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this book. It has much interesting things concerning the life of Mr. Jackson, and gives a good chronology as well. The only downfall as I see it, is the lack of good images and some of the reproductions are poor. Someone (any art authors or Group of 7 lovers) needs to do a coffee table type book on A.Y.'s work. I'd buy one.
A Canadian Icon Feb. 14 2010
By Robert McNally - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Not just an art book on a great Canadian artist. It is a very interesting read. The author chronicles Jackson's life, the development and evolution of his art, his style and his relationship with and on the Group of Seven. It is both entertaining and educational. I was pleasantly surprised.
