"…a handy and
concise market resource specializing in Canada's most actively traded
artists this dictionary is an essential addition to every collector's
fine art reference library."
Shawna White, Canadian Art Department, Sotheby's (Canada) Inc.
Most collectors and investors
refer to an artists dictionary because they want information on an artist
whose work they have seen, are considering purchasing, or have just
bought, on the secondary market (through an art dealer or at auction).
However, outside of the better known market names, information on the
majority of artists is often scant and scattered.
Now, with The Collector's Dictionary of Canadian
Artists at Auction pertinent collector information on many of
these 'minor' artists, as well as the more established names, has been
brought together in one handy, comprehensive reference source. The four
volume Dictionary set will feature more than 3000 of Canada's most active
traded artists at auction working in every medium from oil and watercolour
through limited edition prints and sculpture.
Each listing includes, where known, the artist's name, dates and affiliations,
birthplace, where and under whom studied, art style, main subject matter
and principal mediums used. Additional data pertinent to the career
and reputation of the artist, including major institutional exhibitions
and collections is also listed.
Volume II: G-L features information and cross
references to over 700 Canadian artists and historical artists active
in Canada during their career, from the 1700s to the present.
Volume I: A-F, volume III: M-R, and volume IV: S-Z are also available
either individually or as a complete four volume set.
