"The bestselling author of Abstract Painting in Canada explores one of Canada's only avant-garde movements, The Plasticiens" By the mid-1950s, young Montreal artists were turning their backs on the surrealist spontaneity of the Automatistes. Painting in Montreal paralleled the New York pattern of following the "hot" of Abstract Expression with the "cool" of Post-painterly Abstraction. But Montreal produced a late Modernist practice markedly distinct and independent from New York's - amovement known as The Plasticiens. Sumptuously illustrated, this volume features seventy-five paintings by Louis Belzile, Charles Gagnon, Yves Gaucher, Jean Goguen, Jauran (Rodolphe de Repentigny), Jean-Paul Jérôme, Denis Juneau, Fernand Leduc, Guido Molinari, Fernand Toupin, and Claude Tousignant.

Roald Nasgaard, eminent art historian andformer chief curator at the Art Gallery of Ontario, is the author of the critically acclaimed books The Mystic North, Abstract Painting in Canada, andThe Automatiste Revolution, and many exhibition catalogues. Michel Martin was the curator of contemporary art at the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec from 1978 to 2008. His many exhibitions include John Heward: A Trajectory, Fernand Leduc: Freeing the Light, and Yves Gaucher:Recurrences.
