Now comes CANADIAN ART, a revised, completely up-to-date and expanded version, which is virtually a new book." Contains material on all aspects of Canadian art, with sections on "art institutions, public opinion in relation to art and the growth of public art bodies. Special mention should be made of the chapter on the war artists of World War II."
