Format: Paperback
In spite of the fact that Canada is a relatively young country with a small population we do have some impressive contributions to the arts and this book provides the reader with a short history of Canadian painting to the year 1980. Art by Emily Carr, AY Jackson(one of the group of seven), and more are featured in full color. A must read for the Canadian art historian.

This book was recommended to me by Prof. Francois-Marc Gagnon as a great introduction to Canadian art history. I agree it is a wonderful book;now in its third edition. I found the part on more recent artists somewhat long and tedious and I would have preferred to have more on a number of important Quebec artists like Jean-Paul Lemieux who is barely mentioned.

Format: Hardcover
An enjoyable, if somewhat academic, review of Canadian painting, including to some excellent reproductions (full-page) of paintings. The scholarship and detail is very well done (the "concise" subtitle is somewhat deceiving, but I believe he is indicating there was so much more to of value review, but could not be placed in one volume).

For someone who wants a more lively writing style, heavier on story-telling, I strongly suggest Picturing the Land: Narrating Territories in Canadian Landscape Art, 1500-1950

Format: Paperback
My title says it all; this book was required reading for an Art History class on Canadian Art and I hated to have to read it. This is coming from an admitted History nerd, I can't get enough knowledge about the past, and yet this compilation of readings was so boring and slogged on with such dry writing that it was painful to have to read. Now in the book's defense I do not care much for colonial art as most of it is portrait and landscape based which for colonial Canada is paintings of farms and natives. However I can stomach almost anything and get something out of it unless the writing is as bad as this.
