Part biography, part art history, part art commentary and first in the new series: The Unheralded Artists of BC, this book tells the story of a prodigious sculptor whose artistic legacy is known to only a few collectors, fellow sculptors and curators. Illustrated throughout with rare colour photographs, the lively, wide ranging text is based on original interviews, letters and diaries. A resident of Vancouver from his early twenties on, Marshall was admired as a master carver but also worked extensively in bronze. At a time when conceptual and installation art dominated, he worked in the Modernist tradition he shared with his friend, Henry Moore, who was one of many influences. His work is at the Van Dusen Gardens. He was a founding member of the Sculptors' Society of British Columbia. He died in 2006. Introduction by Brooks Joyner former Director of the Vancouver Art Gallery in BC.
