Riassunto: The Automatiste Revolution: Montreal, 1941-1960 accompanies the first exhibition in English Canada ever devoted exclusively to the Automatistes' works. An insightful essay by distinguished professor Ray Ellenwood sets the group's extraordinary accomplishments in a variety of disciplines in the context of the social and political events of the time. And a lively text by eminent historian and curator Roald Nasgaard chronicles the emergence of the Automatiste form of painting, the experimentation of its practitioners and its legacy. Throughout, the authors quote not only the artists themselves but the many reviewers, critics, curators and art historians who have commented on the importance of their art.
Sumptuously illustrated with sixty full-colour paintings and twenty black-and-white archival images, this comprehensive introduction to the Automatistes and their work is a significant addition to any library. A fascinating mix of art, history and politics, The Automatiste Revolution: Montreal, 1941-1960 adds an important chapter to the history of Canadian art.
Roald Nasgaard, art historian and former chief curator at the Art Gallery of Ontario, is the author of the critically acclaimed books The Mystic North, Abstract Painting in Canada, and The Automatiste Revolution. He lives in Toronto.
Ray Ellenwood, professor emeritus and senior scholar at York University in Toronto, is an award-winning translator and author. He writes and publishes extensively about the Automatistes.
