This beautifully illustrated volume presents a thorough examination and celebration of the life and work of Stanford Perrott, Alberta watercolourist and art educator. Max Foran traces the significant influence of Stanford Perrott on the Alberta art scene through fifty years of teaching and painting. A brilliant educator at the Alberta College of Art (and its predecessor within the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology), Perrott spent thirty-seven years guiding a generation of Alberta artists. Under his inspiring tutelage, young painters learned to challenge the boundaries of colonialism and to embrace new artistic visions and expressions. Foran explores with sensitivity Perrott's inner conflict as he sought to balance his own creative energies as a master watercolourist with his chosen role as a teacher, mentor, and champion of Alberta's burgeoning artistic community. Generously enhanced with many photographs and reproductions, this is both an exploration of Stanford Perrott's enduring personal legacy and an important contribution to the field of visual arts and education in Alberta.
