Essays are written by art writers and curators, leading authorities on Thomson and his place in the Canadian cultural landscape, and give the book a complex, critical perspective on Thomson's life. This book examines Thomson from many different angles-not just in terms of his biography and work, but in the context of the period in which he lived, making this a definitive volume for Group of Seven enthusiasts. ---Tom Thomson is one of the first major multi-authored books on this subject, and it has a critical edge that has been missing in the mostly celebratory, decorative works that have come before. The picture that emerges from the essays is complex, contradictory, sometimes even confused, but it's what is needed right now." (Globe and Mail)--In this lavishly illustrated, "comprehensive and compelling account of Tom Thomson's life and times" (Toronto Sun), six expertly written essays reveal the iconic Canadian artist and colleague of the Group of Seven from many different perspectives from his biography and work to the context of the period in which he lived.
