“A sensitive and informed interpretation of the artist’s works themselves and of Bill Reid as a creative individual… Shadbolt’s book is superb.” —Canadian Art
When Bill Reid, one of North America’s great artists, died on March 13, 1998, he left behind a legacy of magnificent art that drew deeply on that of his Haida ancestors. His work continues to be exhibited internationally and is in many private and public collections around the world. This book celebrates the artist and his work.
