                              The dramatic story of Canada’s most famous artist couple


She painted as if whit light itself, radiant colours making kitchen scenes come alive with sublimated drama. He painted like clockwork, each stroke precise and measured with exquisite care, leaving no angle unchecked and no subtlety of tone unattended. Some would say Mary Pratt was fire and Christopher ice. And yet Newfoundland’s celebrated artists presented their marriage as a portrait of harmony and balance.

Intimate and unflinching, Art and Rivalry is a story of traditional values at war with modern ambition, two brilliant lives inseparably linked even after their marriage ended, and f furious competition of ego, sex and dominance in Canadian Art.
