Tom Forestall

It is a unique privilege to witness a near-lifetime’s work by an artist, let alone being able to hold it in your hand.

For Tom Forrestall, the roots of his practice as one of Canada’s most respected artists begins in the pages of books like these – now a collection of more than 330 sketchbooks that span 65 years, and that continue to grow by pages every day and volumes every month.

These books, part of a gift to the Beaverbrook Art Gallery, are a sampling of his entire sketchbook collection, and we are fortunate and honoured to be the stewards of such a significant artistic treasure.
