Tom Thomson: The Life and Mysterious Death of the Famous Canadian Painter
James Lorimer Limited, Publishers, Oct 15, 2003 - Biography & Autobiography - 128 pages
"An overturned canoe. A body recovered. Presumably Thomson drowned. That should have been the end of it. It was only the beginning." This book will be especially fascinating for all readers interested in: biography, history, the visual arts or true-life mysteries. Tom Thomson is perhaps Canada's most famous artist. His short and glorious career was abruptly and brutally ended on July 8, 1917. Since the recovery of Thomson's body, theories as to the cause of his death -- accident? murder? -- have preoccupied sleuths for close to 100 years.
