William Ronald Reid (AKA: Bill Reid) was a very important Canadian sculptor, carver, print maker, graphic artist, jewellery maker, illustrator, author and broadcaster.  He elevated the stature of Haida (Indian) art from the category of an ethnological curiosity to a highly respected fine art form.  Since his death, the degree of his contribution to the 20th Century renaissance of Haida art and even the authorship of some of his best known works has become controversial.  Ho (showing 500 of 11839 characters).
