Canadian Landscape Painters


Canadian Landscape Painters

ROBSON, Albert H.

Regular price $125.00 Sale

Lavish for its time, this comprehensive review of Canada's landscape painters and their art includes a tipped-in colour plate for every artist, including Cornelius Kreighoff, Tom Thomson, Emily Carr, and the Group of Seven. In the last chapter, Robson notes that it is "both necessary and profitable for us to look to the older countries for our development in the craft and theories of art" (p. 212) but wants Canadian artists to avoid "warmed over presentations of another country's culture" (p. 214). Many Canadians will recognize their country's scenic appearance and traditional ways of life in these paintings.
