"Andrew Hunter has looked with fresh eyes at [Colville's] paintings and made a coherent argument that Colville deserves to be understood far beyond the normal borders of the art world." — Robert Fulford, The National Post

This magnificent, best-selling volume is now available in a deluxe paper-bound edition. The original hardcover edition sold more than 15,000 copies.

Colville both honours the legacy of an iconic Canadian artist and explores the contemporary reverberations of his work. Colville was known for being his own man. His paintings depict an elusive tension, a deep sense of danger, capturing moments perpetually on the edge of the unknown. A painter, printmaker, and war artist who drew his inspiration from the world around him, Colville transformed the seemingly mundane events of everyday life into archetypes of the modern condition.

In this beautifully designed volume, Andrew Hunter organizes Colville thematically, incorporating interludes that explore the relationship between Colville's work and the filmmaking of Wes Anderson, Stanley Kubrick, and Sarah Polley, as well as his influence on writers such as Alice Munro and even cartoonist David Collier. The book is rounded out with more than 100 colour reproductions of Colville's paintings, spanning the entirety of his career, including Horse and Train, 1953; To Prince Edward Island, 1965; Woman in Bathtub, 1973; and Target Pistol and Man, 1980.

From the Inside Flap:

"At the window, the sound of waves crashing on the beach has a rhythm, and that rhythm has momentum, and as you close your eyes, that sound begins to vibrate; it blurs into a heavy pulsing sound of wheels pounding over the gaps in the steel rails. It passes. You hear the wind rush through the tall dry marsh grass, feel it pull at your clothes, drawing you inland, after the dark horse, and the girl keeps watching. Hear that lonesome whistle blow. The sound preaks, it becomes a cry, and it hurts. It is the last thing you will ever and always hear." — Andrew Hunter

This magnificent volume honours the legacy of iconic Canadian artist Alex Colville and explores the reverberations between his work and that of contemporary filmmakers, writers, and artists.

Colville is known for painting decidedly personal subject matter. His precise images depict an elusive tension that suggests a sense of danger and captures moments perpetually on the edge of the unknown. Featuring more than 100 reproductions, Colville includes works from museums and private collections across Canada. The volume spans the entirety of Alex Colville's career and contains many images that have never before been reproduced or shown publicly, as well as his most iconic paintings, including Horse and Train (1954), To Prince Edward Island (1965), Woman in Bathtub (1973), and Target Pistol and Man (1980).

Alex Colville was a painter, printmaker, and war artist who drew his inspiration from the world around him, transforming everyday figures and events into archetypes of the modern condition. He was made a Companion of the Order of Canada in 1982 and won a Governor General's Visual and Media Arts Award in 2003.
