Chronicles the life of William Kurelek, a famous painter, from his childhood in Canada to fighting depression as an adult; accompanied by numerous selections of his artwork. Nominated in the nonfiction category for the 2004/2005 Red Cedar Book Awards (British Columbia's Young Reader's Choice book award) William Kurelek was an internationally acclaimed artist, described by the New York Times as ?the North American Brueghel.? Kurelek?s art was brilliant, but his life was difficult in many ways. Born in Alberta and raised on a Manitoba dairy farm, he suffered abuse at the hands of his father. Critics ignored his early paintings, and Kurelek fought a desperate battle with depression. How did such a tormented man create such a stunning legacy that is enjoyed around the world? May Ebbitt Cutler, who published William Kurelek?s award-winning books and knew him as artist and friend, tells the story of a haunted man, and the art that is his legacy
