“FitzGerald famously said that a work of art is ‘a living thing,’ and here we catch his meaning as we witness the exploratory glide of his pencil on the paper, defining form, generating the tension between the subject and the space around it.”

—Sarah Milroy

Book Description

Accompanying a major exhibition of the work of Winnipeg artist Lionel LeMoine FitzGerald organized by the McMichael Canadian Art Collection in partnership with the Winnipeg Art Gallery, Into the Light: Lionel LeMoine FitzGerald offers the first comprehensive look at the accomplishment and the continuing influence of the last member to join the Group of Seven, and the only member born in western Canada.



“Into the Light is a much-needed corrective to what has been a relative scarcity of writing on FitzGerald. Full of the kind of thoughtful, complex responses that FitzGerald’s art, in its own subtle power, seems to call forth, it is both an important academic resource and a good-looking opportunity for coffee-table-book browsing pleasure.”
