Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: The life and times of one of Canada's most beloved contemporary artists, and a gripping yarn that is by turns touching and hilarious. Buchnummer des Verkäufers

Über diesen Titel:

Inhaltsangabe: If you're strolling a beach or ferry deck as sunset casts its glow on British Columbia's Coast Mountains, there's a good chance someone within earshot will say, "It looks just like a Toni Onley." That's how closely Onley is identified with the landscape of Canada's West Coast.

Don't be fooled. The serenity of those watercolours reflects only one facet of Onley's work--and very little of his tumultuous life. Flying Colours gives you the whole canvas, from a rustic riverbank on the Isle of Man to a plane wreck on a mountain glacier. With sly humour, disarming candour and an artist's eye for detail, Onley recalls a life of professional triumphs and personal tragedies. For a painter known for landscapes and collages, Onley proves a dab hand at word portraits, from haughty maharajahs and quirky Manxmen to the alcoholic--and even homicidal--habitués of an artists' colony in Mexico.

None is more colourful than Onley himself. From the cocky schoolboy painting an extra petal on a daffodil to the Rolls-Royce rebel facing down Revenue Canada--and winning--Onley's passion for art and zest for life leap from every page. Art lovers will cherish his lucid, unaffected insights into the creative process, not to mention the lavish illustrations, representing every stage of Onley's career.

An Officer of the Order of Canada, Toni Onley was born in 1928 on the Isle of Man, where he received his early training and was influenced by the work of the great British watercolourists. He came to Canada in 1948. Onley's work is featured in galleries around the world, including the Tate Gallery in London, the National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa, and the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C.

Onley took up flying in 1965, a passion he credits with taking him to the work for which he is best known today: landscape of simplicity and power.

Buchbeschreibung Harbour Publishing, Madeira Park, B.C., 2002. Hard Cover. Buchzustand: Fine. Zustand des Schutzumschlags: Fine. NSNOD. Books shipped Tuesday Thursday Saturday for books ordered 2 day before. DIGITAL PICTURES ON REQUEST. Aprox. Wgt. includes Packaging. (Canadian customers Shipping adjusted for postal code) Edition Not Stated No Other Date WGT. 501-1 kg. BOOK Dimensions 9 by 6 inches. 336 Pages. Chronology, Index. Illustrated throughout with black & white photos, 16 pages of full color plates. CLIP - Toni Onley's serene and spectacular landscapes are known to millions, but the man behind the brush has remained an intriguing enigma-until now. In Flying Colours, Onley paints a self-portrait in words, giving us a sweeping canvas that stretches from a ru stic riverbank on the Isle of Man to a plane wreck on a British Columbia glacier. Ably assisted by Gregory Strong, Onley recalls professional triumphs and personal tragedies with sly humour, disarming candour and an artist's eye for detail. Canada's best-known living landscapist also proves adept at word portraits of maharajahs and Ma nxmen, wives and lovers, statesmen and thugs. He furnishes intimate glimpses of fellow artists including Group of Seven alumnus Fred Varley, Voice of Fire creator Barnett Newman and the motley habitues of the art colony at San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. None of these is more colourful than Onley himself. From the cocky schoolboy painting an extra petal on a daffodil to the Rolls-Royce rebel facing down Revenue Canada, Onley's passion for art and zest for life leap from every page. Art lovers will cherish his lucid insights into the creative process, not to mention the lavish illustrations in Flying Colours, representing every stage of a career spanning more than half a century. And even readers whose art collections hang from frid ge magnets will revel in a ripping yarn that is by turns touching and hilarious. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 009803
