Respectable burial : Montreal's Mount Royal Cemetery by Brian J Young( Book )

"Respectable Burial is a social history of death, burial, and Montreal's Mount Royal Cemetery. A place of great beauty, the Mount Royal Cemetery was an inspiration for Frederick Law Olmstead's adjacent Mount Royal Park and played a part in the development of the city of Montreal. Brian Young shows how the history of the Mount Royal Cemetery mirrors the evolving social makeup, changing mores, and tragic events of what was long Canada's largest city. He examines the changes in the cemetery's landscaping, architecture, and use and shows how, in its evolution from a rural burying ground founded by Montreal's Protestant elite to an urban cemetery, Mount Royal Cemetery has introduced Montreal to new customs and sensibilities from Jewish, Chinese, Greek Orthodox, Buddhist, and other communities."--Jacket

Une mort très digne : l'histoire du Cimetière Mont-Royal by Brian J Young( Book )
6 editions published between 2003 and 2008 in French and English and held by 26 libraries worldwide
Une mort très digne est l'histoire sociale de la mort, de la sépulture et du cimetière Mont-Royal de Montréal. Lieu de grande beauté, le cimetière Mont-Royal a inspiré Henry Law Olmsted lors de la création du parc voisin du Mont-Royal et a joué un rôle notable dans le développement de Montréal. Brian Young démontre que l'histoire du cimetière Mont-Royal renvoie à l'évolution du tissu social, au changement des moeurs et aux événements tragiques dans ce qui a longtemps été la plus grande ville du Canada. Il examine les changements dans l'architecture, l'utilisation et l'aménagement paysager du cimetière et montre comment l'évolution du lieu de sépulture rural fondé par l'élite protestante de Montréal en un cimetière urbain a fait connaître les coutumes et sensibilités différentes des communautés juive, chinoise, grecque orthodoxe, bouddhiste et autres à Montréal

Josef Sudek : the legacy of a deeper vision by Josef Sudek( Book )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 19 libraries worldwide
"During a legendary career that spanned 60 years, twentieth-century Czech photographer Josef Sudek demonstrated a craftsmanship and technical virtuosity that was unparalleled among his contemporaries. HIs approach to photography, characterized by its representation of light, still resonates today. Early in his career, Sudek was aware of Cubism, Surrealism, the Czech avant-garde and other prevailing art movements of the 1920s and 1930s, yet he ultimately sought his own form of expression. HIs photographs possess a contemplative quality, infusing ordinary subjects with poignancy and transforming his observations into timeless visual poems. The Legacy of a Deeper Vision presents more than 175 photographs from the Art Gallery of Ontario's collection, and takes us on a complex autobiographical journey of Sudek's art, life and indomitable spirit. This catalogue features essays from the foremost writers on Sudek's work, including photo-historian and curator Antonín Dufek, Canadian Art editor Richard Rhodes, photographer Goeffrey James and AGO curator Maia-Mari Sutnik. It also contains excerpts from John Banville's Prague Pictures: Portraits of a City and a chronology of this remarkable photographer by the late Anna Fárová, to whose memory the exhibition is dedicated. These photographs cover every stage of Sudek's career, revealing his imagination, versatility and a lifelong quest for mastery of his photographic vision."--Page 2 of cover
