When art making in Canada began to take a radical new direction, Joe Fafard was at the forefront, exploring new media and new imagery. His trademark ceramic cows and bulls have become iconic, and his three-dimensional portraits crackle with insight and humanity-as well as his trademark sly humour.

To accompany a major travelling retrospective, here is the life and art of a Canadian sculptor whose witty works in bronze and clay have catapulted him to international acclaim. (#2960) $75.00
