Book review

This is a portrait biography of Anne Savage, a leading Canadian artist and artist educator who was closely allied to the Group of Seven. Her paintings are to be found in the National Gallery, the Art Gallery of Ontario, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts and many others.

Anne Savage had a lifelong artistic and sentimental relationship with A. Y. Jackson. In some ways, the core of this book is to be found in their letters. ( Some 300 of A. Y. Jackson's were culled by the author for inclusion in this volume). Through these and Anne Savage's own, we have a record of a painters' friendship that spans fifty years. Because of the centrality of the correspondents to Canada's creative life, we also have a running commentary on artistic matters during a critical half-century.

The text is embellished by many of Anne Savage's paintings in black and white and in colour, in the individual style which was her trademark. It also contains "family portraits", including a number of informal shots of A. Y. Jackson and other Canadian painters in their customary haunts.
