“Ian Thom, Senior Curator, Historical, at the Vancouver Art Gallery, traces Tanabe’s career in a biographical essay. Roald Nasgaard, Chair of the Department of Art, Florida State University, looks at Tanabe’s early career and abstractions from the 1950s and 1960s. Art critic Nancy Tousley examines Tanabe’s move to landscape and his acclaimed paintings of the prairie landscape during the 1970s. Jeffrey Spalding, Director of the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, considers the work since Tanabe’s return to British Columbia in 1980 in the context of his career.” A major publication that both provides abundant examples of Tanabe’s work in full colour, and sets his art in historical and developmental context.
