Assistance with not only the book but also the exhibition at Peel Art Gallery, Museum and Archives (PAMA) was supplied by the owner of Wall Fiction and Fine Art Appraisal and Services, Kelly Juhasz, who has been working with the artist's family, Tony Paginton and Roswita Busskamp, on the public rediscovery of this artist and the nation's love of Canadian landscape painting.
The book is described as follows:
A beautiful and long-overdue portrait of a great, but little known, painter of the vast Canadian natural and urban landscape.
George Paginton: Painting a Nation explores the journey of a relatively unknown Canadian landscape painter who was a peer of members of the Group of Seven. Paginton's private passion was to document the wonder of nature from coast to coast. A prolific artist, Paginton created over 1500 oil paintings, the majority of which never exhibited or sold commercially. This publication aims to present the artist to Canadians and include him in the art historical cannon of the nation.
