Volume four, S-Z, of The Collector's Dictionary of Canadian Artists at Auction, is the final volume in this important series that has taken more than three years to produce. Volume one (A-F) was published in 1999, with volume two (G-L) and volume three (M-R) appearing in 2000 and 2001 respectively. The Dictionary, which provides pertinent market information on both prominent and lesser known artists, is the first comprehensive biographical reference source on secondary market artists to be published in Canada. The four volume set features more than 3,900 biographical sketches and cross-references to Canadian artists, and historical artists active in Canada during their career, from the 1700s to the present, and whose work, in all mediums, has sold at auction since 1977 and been recorded in the Canadian Art Sales Index.

Volume Four features more than 700 artists, S-Z, as well as an addendum for the first three volumes, A-R, with over 800 new entries and cross-references.
Each artist entry includes, where known:

  • the artist's name, birthplace and year of birth
  • formal studies - training, influential instructors
  • subject matter, principle medium and artistic style
  • specific career and creative development information of the artist
  • list of major exhibitions and collections

In addition to the entries the Dictionary features an extensive bibliography and a comprehensive abbreviations key to the leading and more obscure fine art institutions.
