The Collector's Dictionary of Canadian Artists at Auction is one of the most important reference sources on Canadian artists yet published, and the first ever dictionary of active Canadian secondary market artists. The four volume work has taken more than three years to produce, and includes comprehensive biographical listings on over 3000 Canadian artists and historical artists active in Canada during their career, from the 1700s to the present. In addition, there are more than 800 cross-references, an extensive bibliography, and an important abbreviations database of prominent fine art societies and institutions, both historical and contemporary. Volume one (A-F) was published in 1999, volume two (G-L) in 2000, volume three (M-R) in 2001, and volume four (S-Z) in 2003. 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.

Working in every medium from oil and watercolour to limited edition prints and sculpture, the artists listed in the dictionary have all had their work sell at auction at some time over the past 25 years and have been recorded in one or more editions of the annual Canadian Art Sales Index since 1980. Published in a handy, soft cover, pocket-book format, the four volume set totals 672 pages.
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
