Published in conjunction with the exhibition Invention & Revival, The Colour Drypoints of David Milne and John Hartman at Carleton University Art Gallery in Ottawa, November 17, 2008 to February 1, 2009. Milne’s invention of the multiple-plate colour drypoint led to a gorgeous body of work and John Hartman adopted the technique early in his career, creating colourful depictions of the stories and history of the places and people of Canada, particularly northern Ontario, where he lives.
The hardcover book includes 40 colour plates, essays by Rosemarie Tovell and Anne-Marie Ninacs and an interview with John Hartman and David Milne Jr. by Diana Nemiroff. Design by Barr Gilmore. 145 pages.
