Chronicles the life of William Kurelek, a famous painter, from his childhood in Canada to fighting depression as an adult; accompanied by numerous selections of his artwork. Nominated in the nonfiction category for the 2004/2005 Red Cedar Book Awards (British Columbia's Young Reader's Choice book award) William Kurelek was an internationally acclaimed artist, described by the New York Times as?the North American Brueghel.? Kurelek?s art was brilliant, but his life was difficult in many ways. Born in Alberta and raised on a Manitoba dairy farm, he suffered abuse at the hands of his father. Critics ignored his early paintings, and Kurelek fought a desperate battle with depression. How did such a tormented man create such a stunning legacy that is enjoyed around the world?

William Kurelek : the messenger by William Kurelek( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Throughout a career that spanned from mid-1950s until his death, William Kurelek (1927-1977) and his art have meant many different things to many people. Widely-known as a painter of innocence and childhood memories whose scenes hearken back to a simpler and timeless past, Kurelek was also a chronicler of the experiences of various cultural groups in Canada, devoting entire series to Ukrainian, Jewish, Polish, Irish, French Canadian, and Inuit peoples. Then there is Kurelek the anguished prophet of a modern apocalypse, his art an indictment of the secular age and a testament to unwavering faith. Few modern artists are so readily accessible, compellingly complex, and so worthy of critical reappraisal. This stunning monograph accompanies the first large-scale survey of William Kurelek in thirty years." -- Publisher's description
