A Concise History of Canadian Painting free pdf For more than 30 years, Dennis Reid's A Concise History of Canadian Painting has been the definitive volume on the art of a nation. This narrative history begins in the late seventeenth century with the European-influenced masters of New France. From there, Reid traces the development of distinctive movements, techniques, and subjects that would come to define Canadian art in the twentieth century, and its continuous evolution in form and style in the years beyond. Reid's masterful critical eye, eloquent voice, and unrivalled historical perspective create a wide-ranging account praised by critics and readers alike. The highly anticipated third edition, fully revised throughout, brings the work up to date with a new chapter on significant artists and movements since 1980. Redesigned in full-colour, with over 220 illustrations, this attractive new edition is an indispensible guide and compelling read.
