THOMPSON, Tom). TOWN, Harold and David P. SILCOX. Tom Thomson : The Silenceand the Storm. (Toronto) : McClelland and Stewart, (1982). Second Edition. Pp -240. Illustrated. Oblong 4to, black cloth. "Tom Thomson, a major fo rmative influence in Canadian art, remains one of the most important Canadian artists of this century. Forerunner of the Group of Seven, he was a man who pioneered painting techniques and shaped the way Canadians view their land. Until now, only a handful of his paintings have been accessible for viewing first-hand or in reproduction. 'Tom Thomson: The Silence and the Storm' marks the centennial of the artist's birth with the most extensive collection of his works ever published -- 177 paintings in full colour and many more in black-and-white. The prints in this book, most of them duplicating the precise dimensions of the original paintings, reproduce with unprecedented fidelity the colours, techniques and power of all of Thomson's classics, plus a number of works that have not been publicly displayed in any form.The accompanying texts by artist Harold Town and art historian David P. Si lcox, provide an aesthetic commentary and a straightforward biographical chronicle." - from the dustjacket. Very good in crisp dustjacket. 80.00
