"David Milne (1881-1953) 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 'was' life. Nothing mattered to him as much as the enormous 'kick' he felt when he was able to produce the image his artist's eye told him was there. Milne returned to Ontario in 1929 after a twenty-five-year stay in the United States. In every place he lived his peripatetic existence, he created a different kind of landscape painting. In his chosen life of solitude, his mind and hand remained very much alive. Since Milne spent as much time writing as he did painting, he provided an enormous amount of material for a life writer. This biography re-creates the texture of the artist's one-of-a-kind life and struggles, allowing a truly intimate portrait to emerge." Very minor wrinkle at the top of the spine, a tiny light foxing mark at the top of the front board. Dust jacket has minor edge wear/wrinkling, a tiny light stain at the top inside edge of the rear panel, small area of partial whiteout on the the original price on the rear panel.
