yellow cloth, gilt spine, 176 p. : ill. (certaines en coul.), minor edge tears to dust jacket, COCKBURN, JAMES PATTISON, army officer and water-colourist; b. 18 March 1779 in New York City. On 5 April 1826, at 47 years of age, he was given command of the Royal Artillery in the Canadas, to which he returned in August. During these years Cockburn had ample leisure to sketch Quebec and its environs as well as scenes in Upper and Lower Canada where his tours of inspection took him.Thus his subjects extend from Quebec to Niagara Falls. The idiom is firmly established in the drawings in sepia or water-colour.Cockburn looked at nature in the Canadian countryside as a true landscape artist: he was able instinctively to find the best angle of approach and arrangement of physical features.

Silcox's eagerly awaited biography of David B. Milne (1882-1953) tells the remarkable story of one of Canada's great artists and his work. This book has been very much a labour of love by Silcox, a love for the work of the artist and an appreciation of his ideas. Lavishly illustrated and based on many years of research, Painting Place provides a perceptive analysis of Milne's work, both the paintings and the artist's voluminous and lively writings. The book balances words and pictures in a way that would surely have delighted its subject as it will its readers." "Milne's unique and striking images set him on a path of his own early in his life. He never sought fame or commercial success, but in time curators sought him out, critics hailed his work, and knowledgeable collectors bought his paintings and prints. Most important of all, he was a painter's painter, acknowledged by other artists as an innovator of supreme ability, an uncompromising master of technique, and a creator of memorable paintings."--Jacket
