This book presents First Nations art and a survey of the ouevre and career of nine major Canadian artists of whom the Thomson Collection has fully representative holdings, such as Cornelius Krieghoff, James Wilson Morrice, David Milne, Lawren S. Harris, J.E.H.MacDonald, Tom Thomson, F.H.Varley, Paul-Emile Borduas and William Kurelek
