David Milne (1882–1953) has long been recognized as one of Canada’s most innovative painters. Although major exhibitions have been devoted to his paintings and prints, his brilliant watercolours, arguably his most beautiful and important works, have never before been revealed in depth.

This lavishly illustrated book, which features essays and an annotated chronology by six Milne experts who consider the artist from international and Canadian perspectives, will accompany the first major exhibition of his work in any medium to travel outside Canada. The exhibitions will be held at: the British Museum in London, July 7– September 25, 2005; The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, November 8, 2005–January 29, 2006; and the Art Gallery of Ontario in Toronto, March 19–June 25, 2006.

Contributors to the book include: John O’Brian, Dennis Reid, David P. Silcox, Rosemarie LeSueur Tovell and Carol Troyen.
