Description

With over seventy new reproductions of never-before-published paintings and new essays, Tom Thomson is the most comprehensive collection of the artist's work ever published.

The original edition in 1977 commemorated the 100th year of Thomson's birth and the 60th of his untimely death. Tom Thomson: The Silence and The Storm was an instant classic. Thomson's brief, brilliant life, and his mysterious death in a canoe accident, quickly gained him mythic status. The book became a legend in its own right and a perennial favourite among Canadian art fans and collectors. This newly designed and greatly expanded edition revives a classic, adds many new images, and offers new insights into Thomson's work, his techniques and his enduring appeal. Candid in its assessment of one of twentieth-century Canada's biggest art stars, Tom Thomson stands out for its original approach and thoroughness. Thomson's sketches and finest works are reproduced in colour, at approximately the same size as the originals. This stunning new edition is a fitting tribute to a great and beloved Canadian artist.
