P11, Painters Eleven: The Wild Ones of Canadian Art

Front Cover
Douglas & McIntyre, 2011 - Art - 346 pages
This first book to be published about Painters Eleven, the brilliant, flamboyant group of Toronto-based Abstract Expressionist painters, covers a major period in Canadian art history, one that has never before been chronicled in such vivid, intimate detail. Iris Nowell knew some of Painters Eleven's nine men and two women artists in the late 1960s, so her text has the unmistakable ring of authenticity and the authority of a writer's inside knowledge of her subject. --
