Description

This beautifully illustrated book documents the life and work of David Milne (1882-1953), one of Canada's greatest modern painters whose vast body of work shows him to be an artist of true originality and vision. Like the members of the Group of Seven, Milne primarily chose landscape as his subject matter. However, his true subject was the process of perception and representation, reducing his painting to its essentials and infusing it with his own distinctive modern sensibility. The book presents an account of one man's spiritual and emotional voyage into modernity - from the bustling sidewalks of New York to the war-torn landscapes of northern France and back to rural Canada. With more than one hundred works in oil and watercolour, this publication provides an appreciation of one of Canada's most sophisticated modern painters.
