Takao Tanabe is one of Canada’s most distinguished painters and teachers. His career has taken him to Europe, the United States and Japan, but his first love has always been the landscape of his home province, British Columbia. A tireless supporter of the visual arts in Canada, Tanabe is the recipient of several honorary degrees, as well as the Order of British Columbia, the Order of Canada and the Governor General’s Award.

Takao Tanabe is the first major publication on this important Canadian artist. This comprehensive study of Tanabe’s life and work helps to mark his position as a leading painter of his generation and one of the most significant landscape painters in Canadian art.

Ian Thom, Senior Curator–Historical at the Vancouver Art Gallery, traces Tanabe’s career in a biographical essay, while his artistic development is examined in three essays by leading Canadian writers.
