About the Book
These five fascinating biographies tell the stories of five Canadians whose visual gifts have given us unique glimpses of Canada. Included are the lives of Cornelius Krieghoff, who recorded 19th century life in Quebec, and Tom Thomson, who glorified the woodlands of northern Ontario. Also featured are Emily Carr, the west coast impressionist, Alex Colville, the east coast magic-realist, and Kenojuak Ashevak, the celebrated Inuit printmaker.
