Description: A beautifully illustrated gift book featuring a wide range of Canadian artists whose work centers around the theme of home, which has emerged as a potent symbol in family life.

One's search for the perfect home can be fierce, courageous, emotional, and reckless. Home is not only a physical place but one that takes on imaginary form as a place where people are kind, where children flourish, and where profound ceremonies of unity are celebrated. The paintings in this book are not so much an outline of the dream of home, but a way of clarifying it. In essence, the 130 works reproduced in this beautiful volume make up a national photo album that helps Canadians understand themselves while allowing outsiders into this nation's homes as they too may understand the country's unique character.

Following the path of her previous best-selling Northern Lights, published by Key Porter in 1994, Canadian art expert Joan Murray has chosen more than 130 works of art from both public galleries and private collections across Canada -- including some paintings photographed especially for this book. She gives the reader an exclusive look at the paintings of these artists and explains the process through which they created their images; her ever-vigilant attention stays with us from the beginning to the end of this treasure trove of fascinating works, including those by:
-- Cornelius Krieghoff
-- Paul Kane
-- William Kurelek
-- Robert Harris
-- Alex Colville
-- Emily Carr
-- Christopher Pratt
-- A.Y. Jackson
-- William Brymner
-- Paul Kane
-- Arthur Lismer
-- Tom Thomson
-- Paul Peel

These painters created, and are creating, Canadian art: Putting them together in this volume gives each painter new energy as well as transforming our idea of the shape of the artistic picture of Canada. "Home Truths" is a book for art lovers and for all those looking for a gift from the heart and soul of Canada.

"Home Truths" will be launched this fall in conjunction with a touring exhibition by the same name, featuring the paintings represented within this volume.
