Criss Canning is one of Australia's best loved and most celebrated still life artists. Inspired by the beauty of nature and the works of advanced European modernists, and with dedication to the absolutes of colour and pictorial composition, she has created paintings that are immediately seductive. One cannot help but be astonished by their beauty and by the level of skill required to achieve their effects.

Among the book's 280 colour images are reproductions of some 218 paintings created between 1980 and 2020 - including her most recent. David Thomas's text elucidates the artist's life story and describes the aesthetic qualities of the paintings from a critical and art historical point of view. The book also contains extensive biographical and bibliographical data and details of all works exhibited in art galleries since 1982.

This comprehensive account of an artist's life and work also focuses on developments in the paintings over the past two years, which herald exciting new aspects of Canning's ongoing 'pursuit of beauty'.
