Overview

In this illustrated biography of painter Alex Colville, Mark A. Cheetham charts the prodigious life and career of one of Canada's best-known artists. Both artist and public figure, Colville engages many worlds at once: painting and politics, creativity and business. He has been given some of the highest honours for his art. He has also been charged with misogyny, opportunism, and crowd-pleasing. Where is the truth among all these contradictions? Read this biography and discover Alex Colville for yourself.
