True Colours

Where Vancouver - - Art Galleries -

Have paint­brush, will travel. A phrase that neatly sums up David Milne’s half-cen­tury ca­reer, which took the pro­lific painter from New York to European bat­tle­fields to the Cana­dian wilder­ness. The artist is fa­mous for his “war water­colours,” cre­ated as an of­fi­cial war artist in WWI, which used an in­no­va­tive dry­brush tech­nique to quickly craft the vi­brant works. See pi­o­neer­ing paint­ings such as “White Trees in a Green Val­ley” (pic­tured) at the Van­cou­ver Art Gallery’s David Milne: Mod­ern Paint­ing (to Sep. 9; listed at right).—Jill Von Sprecken
