Tom Thomson did it better than anyone else. He stands as the most important artist in Canadian history. A forerunner of The Group of Seven, Thomson created paintings that shaped the way Canadians view their land.
The mystery of his death continues to stir speculation and spin off theories, but the emotional response to his paintings is stronger than ever.
Although he died before he was forty, Thomson's compelling works ignited a powerful national art movement and create lasting icons for a young country.
Tom Thomson: The Silence and the Storm contains the most extensive collection of his work ever published, 177 paintings in vivid color and many more in black and white. Nearly 80 of his brilliant sketches are reproduced to their actual size, giving them an immediacy almost equal to the originals. This is the only book that reproduces over 140 paintings that had never been reproduced in color before.
The accompanying texts, by artist Harold Town (1924-1990) and art historian David P. Silcox, provide an aesthetic commentary and full biographical chronicle.
This special 25th Anniversary edition of Tom Thomson: The Silence and the Storm marks the 125th Anniversary of the birth of Canada's most popular and beloved artist and the 85th anniversary of his death.
