Writing this book has been a pleasure and a privilege, and there are many to whom I am indebted. I am grateful to Sara Angel for the opportunity and for several wonderful conversations about William Brymner, and to Michael Rattray and Sarah Brohman for their insightful editorial guidance. The staff at ACI have done tremendous work on this book, and I am particularly grateful to Stephanie Burdzy, Simone Wharton, and Annie Champagne. During the research for the project, many people assisted me with queries and searching for Brymner’s paintings, and in particular I thank Katerina Atanassova, Daryl Betenia, Audrey Blanchette, Christine Braun, Krista Broeckx, Tobi Bruce, Isabelle Chartier, Danielle Currie, Jacques Des Rochers, Philip Dombowsky, Brian Foss, Jacquie Gardner, David Goldbloom, Celine Gorham, Juliet Graham, Ryan Green, Alan Klinkhoff, Jonathan Klinkhoff, Fynn Leitch, Kathleen Mackinnon, Marie E.
