Abstract (English)

" Jock Macdonald was a pioneer of postwar abstraction in Canada. This retrospective publication of the Scottish-born artist's work offers a lively presentation of a career that spanned the country and greatly influenced twentieth century Canadian art. This sumptuously illustrated publication includes never-before-seen colour reproductions, texts by the curators and scholar Anna Hudson, correspondence with British Surrealists Grace W. Pailthorpe and Reuben Mednikoff, and a complete transcription of the artist's Nootka Diary, kept while living for a year in the trying conditions of Nootka Sound. " -- Publisher's website.
