New art book about Homer Watson

A new art book about the Canadian landscape painter Homer Watson is now available from Art Canada Institute. This publication is part of the ACI’s Canadian Online Art Book Project, a series of peer-reviewed and richly illustrated books.

I edited this book, by teacher and curator Brian Foss, for ACI. Check out Homer Watson here. While you’re at it, peruse the full collection…all of the ACI art books are free to read and download.

“Homer Watson’s landscapes were biographical manifestos and philosophical statements, an opportunity to explore nature’s inner life, power, and meaning and to probe the delicate relationship of respect that he believed human beings should establish with the natural world. His dedication to safeguarding the environment was exceptional and far-sighted.”

Brian Foss
