We have the unique opportunity to promote this rare collection of Canadian icon paintings reproduced in a revolutionary format. Every brush stroke, every patch of unpainted surface, every minute mark, both intended and unintended is duplicated with perfect fidelity. In 45 years we have never seen a finer recreation of an original painting. A cast was created with each painting pressed into a mould, making them virtually identical to the original work of art. The lithograph is printed on neutral pH Phoenix Imperial fine art paper, employing the unique process. Every detail of brushwork and texture in the original oil is duplicated, producing a genuinely recreated painting on the substrate, an African hardwood panel.

He lived in New England from 1934 to 1939 and spent 1940 in New Mexico before returning to Canada to live and paint in Vancouver.
