Product Description

Review

A valuable resource for art history classes. (Gail Lennon Resource Links 2006-02-00)

Visually, this book is a treat... fine color reproductions.... an ideal way to begin an acquaintance with a much-admired and influential figure in early twentieth-century Canadian art. Highly Recommended. (Ann Stinner CM Magazine 2006-04-16)

Substantive [and] succinct ... full of delightful paintings that celebrate eastern Quebec's "rural architecture and rural traditions." [Gagnon's] illustrations for the Canadian novel Maria Chapdelaine ... are brilliant. (John Arkelian Artsforum)

This handsome little catalogue offers up a delightful pot-pourri of the works of Clarence Gagnon. (Raymond J. Steiner Art Times 2006-01-00)

Easy-to-read... well illustrated. (Regina Haggo Hamilton Spectator 2005-12-20)

Visually, this book is a treat. Gagnon, who was very particular about how his artwork was presented in publications, would have been delighted with the fine colour reproductions here. The images are laid out on the pages with ample white space around them so that we can appreciate the brilliant colour and textured brushwork of his painting. Black and white photographs are also interspersed throughout the book to document the important places, events, and people in Gagnon's life. In conclusion, Clarence Gagnon: An Introduction to His Life and Art is an ideal way to begin an acquaintance with a much-admired and influential figure in early twentieth-century Canadian art. Highly Recommended. (Ann Stinner Canadian Materials 2006-04-14)

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Glad to have this collection of Gagnon's paintings and the commentary is good. Quality of the prints is a bit lacking, at least in this paperback version. Gagnon's colors are so vivid, and here they're a little washed out.

By Steven B. Weiner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This a beautiful book, with just enough background on Clarence Gagnon to inform someone new to his work quite well.
