"This beautifuil volume, full of the light and colour that characterize most Impressionist art, is a thoroughly enjoyable guide to Canadian Impressionist painting from roughly 1885 to 1920. It bringstogether, for the first time in book form, the Canadian representatives of the world's most popular and accessible school of painting, offering a tot ally fresh look at a now-vanished society, and presenting a strong contrastto the isolated, unpopulated vision of the country usually portrayed by th e Group of Seven -- although members of that group represented in their earlier, more intimate styles. 'Canadian Impressionism' conveys a vivid cross-section of the subject, including many paintings that have never before been reproduced. The work of neglected artists such as Helen McNicoll, Frank Armington, John S. Gordon, John Russell, and William Clapp is featured amongthe seventy full-colour plates, alongside the more familiar talents of J.W . Morrice, Paul Peel, Lawren Harris, Maurice Cullen, and A.Y. Jackson." - from the dustjacket. Vg in nicked, unclipped dj. Due to this volume's excessweight, extra shipping charges may be necessary to cover the cost of posta ge on international orders. 50.00
