Foxing to front, back, and top edge, minor soiling to back, minor glue soiling near spine at back interior, minor edge wear to top and fore edges of paper, otherwise tightly bound and clean throughout. Replete with full-color and black-and-white images of Pratt’s works throughout. A retrospective catalogue by Joyce Zemans of the art organized by the Vancouver Art Gallery. Complete with Preface by David A. Lewis, Foreword by Jo-Anne Birnie Danzker, Acknowledgements by Joyce Zemans, and text throughout. A retrospective display of Pratt’s oil paintings, watercolor paintings, graphite sketches, and silkscreens that he created throughout his life. From the Introduction: “Pratt is more rightly the spiritual heir to the Precisionist tradition–a tradition known to both Colville and Lawren P. Harris. He, however, has developed from it a language that speaks as deeply as pure abstraction. Founded in his experience of the Avalon Peninsula, Pratt’s art is about eternal truths.”
