Nous remercions vivement Ramsay Cook d'avoir consent! a ecrire 1'avant-propos de cet ouvrage. Le soutien qu'il a genereusement apporte a la realisation de ce projet, le vif interet qu'il manifeste pour 1'histoire culturelle canadienne en general nous ont aidees a ne pas oublier le contexte dans lequel se situait notre travail. Nos propres institutions - 1'Universite Concordia, benefi- xxxviii Remerciements ciaire de la subvention, et 1'Universite York - ont joue un role important en nous apportant soutien et encouragement depuis 1980.

Les etudes bibliographiques comme celle-ci devraient inciter leur editeurs a recourir encore davantage a cette technique. Des explications sur ce qui a ete inclus dans la bibliographie et sur ce qui en a ete exclu sont necessaires. Des criteres plutot souples ont guide les auteures au moment de prendre les decisions. Par exemple, elles ont precede de faqon moyennement selective en ce qui concerne la masse des ecrits portant sur un petit nombre d'artistes et sur trois ou quatre centres d'art. Cependant, elles ont passe au peigne fin les ecrits sur 1'art af in d'y relever des elements tangibles de la vie artistique a 1'exterieur des grands centres.

S'il n'existe aucun texte ou document sur un artiste connu localement, il n'appartient pas aux auteures de combler cette lacune. La bibliographic reflete la documentation ecrite telle qu'on la retrouve avant 1982. Les auteures n'ont pas voulu evaluer les ecrits ni les faire evaluer par des specialistes des divers champs d'activite. Le role du bibliographe est de presenter cette documentation en toute objectivite, telle qu'il 1'a trouvee. D'un point de vue retrospectif, on constate que parfois 1'information concrete tiree de textes originaux est inexacte et que les opinions emises se fondent sur bien peu de faits a 1'appui.
