About this product
- Description<i>2016 Hamilton Arts Council Literary Award for Non-Fiction Winner</i><br/><br/><b>David Milne is one of Canada s finest artists, a man whose work speaks to the intricate beauty of the world as he experienced it.</b><br/><br/> David Milne (1882 1953) dedicated his life to exploring nature and casting it into art in a variety of modernist formats. He was born into poverty in rural Ontario and remained poor all his life because of his relentless dedication to his art. For him, art <i>was</i> life. Nothing mattered to him as much as the ermous kick he felt when he was able to produce the image his artist's eye told him was there.<br/><br/> Milne returned to Ontario in 1929 after a twenty-five-year stay in the United States. In every place he lived his peripatetic existence, Milne created a different kind of landscape painting. In his chosen life of solitude, his mind and hand remained very much alive.<br/><br/> Since Milne spent as much time writing as he did painting, he provides an ermous amount of material for a life writer. His biography re-creates the texture of the artist's one-of-a-kind life and struggles, allowing a truly intimate portrait to emerge.
