Canadian painter Harold Town was a contrarian—a defiant and proud voice that didn’t care for dissenting opinion. And that’s why we love him. Below is a great video of a CBC interview with the native Torontonian. In it, he’s verbose, caustic, and candid. Preview the ACI’s Harold Town: Life and Work by Gerta Moray here.
