About this item

"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, includingHorse and Train, 1953; To Prince Edward Island, 1965; Woman in Bathtub, 1973; andTarget Pistol and Man, 1980.
