Description

Christopher Pratt is one of the handful of recognized artists who have defined Newfoundland in the eyes of the world. This fall, in honour of his 70th birthday, the National Gallery of Canada will launch a major exhibition to mark the occasion. With its emphasis on paintings from the past twenty years, this will be the first exhibition highlighting his recent production. Josee Drouin-Brisebois's text explores how Pratt interprets the geographical, social and political landscape of Newfoundland through his personal response to his surroundings, and Jeffrey Spalding shrewdly reveals the wellsprings and broad impacts of Pratt's images.

Editorial Reviews

"This book...offers insights into the sublimated political meanings which a dedicated viewer can infer from Pratt's painting."

— Times Columnist

"This book is a collection of his best paintings in all their lineal, minimalist magnificence. Spanning a period of 20 years, it offers 85 superbly reproduced colour images of classic Pratt."

— Globe & Mail

"Published in a lavish oversize format, this exhibition catalogue presents Pratt's large paintings in full-page and two-page color plates of excellent quality."

— Art Book News Annual

"Pratt is a handsome volume, beginning with a striking front cover..."

— The Record

"One of the principal interests of this outstanding publication... is its interpretation of Pratt's austere and introspective art in a social, political, and environmental light."

— Georgia Straight
