This index has been compiled as a quick reference guide to biographies of 9,052 professional and amateur artists active in Canada from the seventeenth century to the present. The artists represent 42 professional categories, from animation to topography. In addition to 8,261 Canadian artists, the Index has 391 British, 300 American, and 100 European artists, all of whom spent part of their careers in Canada. Each entry provides the artist's name, date and place of birth and death (or years the artist flourished, if birth and death dates are not available), the nationality (if not Canadian), type of artist (major medium media used), and sources in which biographical information may be found. Several hundred cross-references link the various names used by some artists during the course of their careers.

'[Evelyn McMann] is no ordinary indexer and her forte is, clearly, meticulous accuracy. In the course of her work, she sifted through layers of often conflicting information from original and other sources, in the process contributing corrections to the records of the Academy itself. [Royal Canadian Academy of Arts] will form an essential part of Canadian reference sections for years to come ...'

- - Karen McKenzie - Art Documentation

'What Evelyn McMann has successfully achieved is a valuable reference resource contained in one thick volume ... The resulting book is an important working tool for Canadian art historians, dealers, gallery staff, and serious collectors.'

- D.B.G. Fair - Ontario Museum Quarterly

'McMann has clearly gone to extraordinary lengths in the preparation of this book. Hers is the kind of meticulous work that typically goes unacknowledged and unappreciated. But anyone who finds the clue they're looking for in this document will be glad for her efforts.'

- Christopher Hume - Quill & Quire
