This edition provides a comprehensive survey, generously illustrated, of three centuries of Canadian painting from its beginnings in the seventeenth century. Through a lively combination of entertaining anecdotes, descriptions of the cultural background, biographical accounts, and critical judgement, the reader comes to know intimately the artists, their paintings, and their environments. They allow the reader to see representative works from all periods, and provide a visual record of the cultural and social history of Canada. 463pp. N.B. Corners of covers creased.
