From the Author
I was honoured to be asked to write a book about Alex Colville for the Art Canada Institute, and I would like to thank Sara Angel and Anna Hudson for the opportunity. I want to acknowledge the work of so many scholars and curators before me, whose research was invaluable in developing this project. In particular, the insights and approaches of David Burnett, Mark Cheetham, Helen J. Dow, Philp Fry, Andrew Hunter, and Tom Smart, in their excellent books on Colville, were invaluable in my research. The staff at the ACI were unfailingly helpful and professional, and I would like to thank the team led by Kendra Ward for making this book possible. My editor, Shannon Anderson, was a pleasure to work with, and her care and attention made this a much better project. Finally, I would like to thank Ann Kitz, and the entire Colville family, for being so helpful and accommodating with this book project, which could not have existed without their support.
