Alan Randall Best (1953-2010) was a Canadian artist who established a reputation for his landscape paintings, sculpture, and prints depicting the beauty of his native Nova Scotia. Best was born in Halifax and studied at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design (NSCAD) in 1978. He also studied printmaking at the Banff Centre in Alberta, and would go on to become a master printmaker with a distinctive style and approach. Much of Best’s work focused on nature, especially the coastal landscapes of his home province, depicting the beauty and power of the sea in a style that was both light and dark. He used a mixture of abstraction and realism to capture the atmosphere of the landscape, often giving it a sense of drama and depth. Among his best-known works are “The Bear Rocks,” “Distant Horizons,” “Nova Scotia in Winter,” and “Lunenburg Sky.” Randall Best was an influential Canadian artist who was awarded an honorary doctorate from NSCAD and was inducted into the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts in 2005.
