Sneak Peak: "Mount Robson, Spiral Road of Art"
by Jane Lytton Gooch, published by Rocky Mountain Books, will hit book shelves this spring.
A Lawren Harris painting graces the front cover, and I am very pleased that my painting "Mt. Robson, North Face" gets the back cover, and will also appear in the book along with another watercolour ("Snowbird Pass") and a charcoal ("Berg Lake.") The book will be available this spring, Date TBA.
From The RMB website: "Mount Robson: Spiral Road of Art celebrates the centennial of Mount Robson Provincial Park with over a century of remarkable landscape paintings inspired by the Robson region in the Canadian Rockies. This volume includes an extensive Introduction with historical and cultural background to the 50 colour plates, all documented and described, illustrating artists' works in a variety of styles and media from 1907-2012. Early artists include A.P. Coleman, the first explorer, and Group of Seven members A.Y. Jackson and Lawren Harris. In addition, the works of 17 contemporary artists show that the Mount Robson area continues to stimulate landscape art up to the present. Only 10 of the images have been published before."
