A century of landscape art inspired by the Mount Assiniboine area of the Canadian Rockies from 1899 to 2006. Jane Lytton Gooch's Mount Assiniboine: Images in Art is a stunning collection of 42 colour plates, only seven of which have been previously published. They represent a wide variety of styles and media from 23 artists, including: A.P. Coleman Carl Rungius James Simpson Belmore Browne Barbara and A.C. Leighton Catharine and Peter Whyte W.J. Phillips A.Y. Jackson Colour plates are divided into three sections: approaching Assiniboine from the northwest; east of Assiniboine; and Mount Assiniboine itself. Each section is introduced with a black-and-white archival photograph and a quotation. In addition, four black-and-white archival photographs, along with five colour reproductions of Mary Vaux Walcott's stunning watercolours of wildflowers sketched in the Assiniboine area, complement Gooch's introduction. Gooch also discusses the history of exploration of the region, early ascents of Mount Assiniboine , the development of tourism and the significant artistic activity this majestic peak has inspired.
