From the dj blurb: "The purpose of this book is to illustrate a theme - the connection between the work of a major artist and his religious belief. The artist is Mark Tobey; the religion, the Baha'i Faith. Although this book is neither biography or art history, the reader will find much about the man, both public and private, and reproductions of many of his works, some well-known, some never illustrated before." Apart from the descriptive text and articles of Dahl, there are poems by Tobey, and two of his essays: Art and Community and The One Spirit. Other contributions include Tobey's World View by William C. Seitz; Looking at Tobey's Pictures by Joshua C. Taylor; and Two Personal Glimpses by Marion Hofman and Canadian poet Roger White. A further connection to Canada is his influence on Emily Carr, whose studio in Victoria was the site of a course he gave in 1928.
