Description

Bill Reid Collected features 130 colour photographs of the works of the renowned Haida artist Bill Reid (1920-1998). This chronological collection of memorable works of Reid’s career begins with the tiny Tea Service he carved in 1932 for his younger sister and ends with four etchings from 1997. Along with an introductory essay by Dr. Martine J. Reid, this collection pays tribute to one of Canada's most renowned First Nations artists. Over his lifetime, Bill Reid created many historic pieces of art including the large bronze sculpture The Spirit of Haida Gwaii, also called the Jade Canoe and displayed at the Vancouver International Airport, and The Raven and the First Men, a yellow cedar carving. Both are featured on the Canadian $20 bill. In addition to the immense praise for his artwork, Reid received the National Aboriginal Achievement Award for Lifetime Achievement in 1994. He continued to create stunning sculptures up until his death in 1998.
