The best introduction to the Group available. With elegant ease, Silcox expertly recounts the Group's travels and artistic concerns, relating them to the times with a refined talent for synthesis. The 369 reproductions look even crisper than those in the original edition.--Victor Swoboda"Montreal Gazette" (12/02/2006) This is a gorgeous book that deserves a place on any art lover's bookshelf.--Bill Robertson"Saskatoon Star Phoenix" (12/17/2011) A splendid volume.--Jon Fear"Waterloo Record" (12/09/2011) Includes many rarely seen paintings as well as the signature paintings that dazzle our imagination... The paintings are set on a white matte paper that allows the richness of the color and texture of the brushstroke to come through... The historical information is concisely written, offering insight into the men who led the movement of Canadian art into new, daring, interpretive and abstract directions. This beautiful book will be appreciated whenever it is opened. It's a gift, in more ways than can be expressed.--Harriet Zaidman"Winnipeg Free Press" (12/03/2006)
