Product Description

Review

Notable for the superb quality and the quantity of its color plates.... Organized thematically, rather than by artist, the volume collects together notable works according to subject, including portraits, WWI, and urban and village scenes, with the majority of the works grouped into the geographic areas that the painters depicted... Each chapter opens with an essay, followed by page upon page of full-page color plates of the intensely colorful works. (Book News 2012-02-01)

Recently released in paperback, this fabulous book is a definitive collection of a group of artists who helped establish a national perspective. Their dramatic use of colour and line created a style uniquely Canadian that gave rise to an entire painting tradition. Featuring 400 works, the paintings are divided into a number of different sections that address the regional influences along with the urban and portraiture subjects. (North Shore News 2011-12-23)

This is a gorgeous book that deserves a place on any art lover's bookshelf. (Bill Robertson Saskatoon Star Phoenix 2011-12-17)

A splendid volume. (Jon Fear Waterloo Record 2011-12-09)

Includes many rarely seen paintings as well as the signature paintings that dazzle our imagination... The paintings are set on a white matte paper that allows the richness of the color and texture of the brushstroke to come through... The historical information is concisely written, offering insight into the men who led the movement of Canadian art into new, daring, interpretive and abstract directions. This beautiful book will be appreciated whenever it is opened. It's a gift, in more ways than can be expressed. (Harriet Zaidman Winnipeg Free Press 2006-12-03)

The best introduction to the Group available. With elegant ease, Silcox expertly recounts the Group's travels and artistic concerns, relating them to the times with a refined talent for synthesis. The 369 reproductions look even crisper than those in the original edition. (Victor Swoboda Montreal Gazette 2006-12-02)

I bought this book (paperback) as a gift, and I am considering buying a copy for myself, but the hardcover version because the paperback does not open fully and some pictures that use both pages cannot be seen well.

J'ai reçu le livre dans un très bon état et je dois dire que les reproductions des toiles sont belles et souvent dans un format qui permet d'apprécier les oeuvres.
