Description

A smartly packaged, affordably priced collection of the works of a Canadian icon.

Nearly seventy years after her death, Emily Carr's works continue to capture the grandeur of British Columbia's landscape and define our vision of the nation. The approximately one hundred works reproduced in this collection showcase the breadth of Carr's career, from early watercolours in Skidegate and Alert Bay on the northwest coast to charcoal sketches in mid-career to the stunning oils of trees, ravens, and mountains that characterized her later career.

Beautifully designed, its small format and price ideal for giftbuyers and visitors to the province, this volume is a compendium of some of Carr's best and most memorable works.

Emily Carr Collected

This small format art book published in association with the Vancouver Art Gallery includes a short biography of Emily Carr that traces the arc of her artistic life and includes 130 pages of high quality colour plates of her most important works. Her work is organized chronologically so as to facilitate reference to them when reading the biography. A detailed list of the works is included at the end of the book. The biography will serve art students well in that it shows the uneven path an artist’s career can follow and the value of perseverance and a reset when things don’t turn out as planned. It also shows the value (with corresponding colour plates) of revisiting past works when new skills and/or insights are attained.
