Description

Presenting three titles in the Quest Biography series that profiles prominent figures in Canada’s history. Canada’s vast wilderness presents many opportunities for artists to capture its beauty in their distinct styles, and the country has produced its share of talented landscape painters. Tom Thomson’s work is known the world over for its wild, vivid portrayals of Ontario’s wilderness. Emily Carr captured the lushness of the west coast as well as the traditional culture of the indigenous peoples. Lesser known, James Wilson Morrice also contributed to Canada’s landscape painting legacy through paintings inspired by such artists as the Impressionists and Van Gogh. These artists’ lives are as fascinating as their work.

Includes

  • Emily Carr
  • Tom Thomson
  • James Wilson Morrice
