About this item

In this third instalment of Douglas & McIntyre?s Collected series celebrating beloved Canadian artists, the iconic work of Bill Reid (1920?1998) is lavishly illustrated with photographs of his many sculptures, carvings, jewellery, screen prints and paintings. His long career was driven by an appreciation of the well-crafted object and informed by a rediscovery of the culture and themes of his Haida heritage. Through his international success, it was Bill Reid who reintroduced the art of the Pacific Northwest First Nations and brought a unique and important culture due attention on the world stage.

Over his lifetime, Reid created many historic pieces of art including The Spirit of Haida Gwaii?a monumental 4,900-kg bronze sculpture for the Canadian Embassy in Washington?and its twin,The Jade Canoe, installed at the Vancouver International Airport. The Raven and the First Men is a massive carving in yellow cedar commissioned for the University of British Columbia?s Museum of Anthropology and is also featured on the Canadian $20 bill. In addition to enduring praise for this artwork, Reid received the National Aboriginal Achievement Award for Lifetime Achievement in 1994. He continued to create stunning sculptures up until his death in 1998.

Bill Reid Collected chronologically features the most beautiful and memorable works of Reid?s career in full colour along with an introductory essay by Martine J. Reid. This collection pays tribute to one of Canada?s most epochal First Nations artists.
