Bruno Bobak became a professional artist before he was 20 years old, and more than 60 years later, his work remains vibrant and in demand by public galleries and collectors in North America and Europe. Bruno Bobak: The Full Palette celebrates his life and work. Five authors present Bobak's life and artistic development, stage by stage. Herb Curtis, a novelist and essayist, outlines the artist's early years in Hamilton, Ontario. Laura Brandon, curator of War Art at the Canadian War Museum, describes Bobak's development as a War Artist, and internationally renowned painter, print-maker, and educator Gordon Smith recalls Bobak's formative decade in Vancouver. Marjory Rogers Donaldson, a painter and portraitist, portrays the richness of Bobak's mature years in Fredericton, and independent curator Roslyn Rosenfeld examines the remarkable depth and range of Bobak's drawings and prints. Introduced by Hermenegilde Chiasson, the author and artist who is Lieutenant-Governor of New Brunswick.
