Excellent condition, hardcover and jacket fine. Oblong book - 10 x 11 in. Hardcover clean and unmarked. Jacket has no tears, light scuffing/light scratches to rear. Beautifully illustrated in colour. ; Oblong 4to 9" - 11" tall; 90 pages; In the time honoured tradition of the Old Masters, Dusan Kadlecís paintings are both simple and profound. His many paintings transcend being simply illustrative or representational art. Instead his art evokes within us a sense of nostalgia for bygone Halifax. This feeling for 19th century Halifax is not merely the consequence of his chosen subject matter, but rather a very conscious effort by the artist to romantically portray the mood, the atmosphere, the very essence of a place and time. Through his unique and immediately recognizable style, his old world lighting, texture, and obvious attention to every detail, Dusan Kadlec manages to convey the viewer to another era. This is one of the things that make his work so broadly and genuinely appealing. He not only presents us with an insight into our past; he somehow leaves us with the impression that he has actually been there and perhaps more importantly that in some way he has managed to take us there for a moment as well. Dusan Kadlecís compassionate studies, meticulously researched through extensive archival sources, have become highly sought after and are now considered by numerous collectors around the world to be the standard to attain in this type of painting. His vivid canvases of nineteenth and early twentieth century life in historic Halifax continue to win an ever-increasing number of fans. The old port cityís urban and maritime heritage has been preserved for future generations. (690-0514)
