From the Inside Flap

     Few cities are as fortunate as Halifax in having an artist of Dusan Kadlec’s calibre to document its unique history. His chosen subject matter, old world lighting, use of texture, and obvious attention to detail portray the mood, the atmosphere, the very essence of Halifax as it was in the nineteenth and early twentieth century. Kadlec’s paintings of this historic port city are as accurate as they are charming, as objective as they are inspired. Dusan Kadlec arrived in Halifax when many of the historic sites and buildings of the city were being torn down and replaced by modern buildigns, or being left to decay. Fortuitously, his interest in history and his desire to leave a legacy for the future corresponded with the interest of Haligonians in art that spoke of a vanishing age of charm and serenity. His career as a Canadian artist was launched, and today Kadlec is celebrated as one of Canada’s foremost historical and marine artists. Inspired Halifax includes streetscapes, architecture, and harbour scenes of Halifax, as well as recent works depicting Boston, New York, Saint John, and Charlottetown.
