Description

Defiant Victorian, drawn to the deep forest and the open sky. Early recorder of Northwest Coast monumental art. Painter. Writer. Humorist. Emily Carr is all of these, and she is uniue in the Canadian cultural pantheon.

 

We know much about Emily Carr, but what of the social and political contexts that surrounded her, that defined her image and her posterity?

 

This groundbreaking book by three distinguished senior curators -- Charles C. Hill, Johanne Lamoureux, Ian M. Thom -- and seven equally distinguished Canadian essayists -- Jay Stewart & Peter Macnair, Shirley Bear & Susan Crean, Marcia Crosby, Andrew Hunter, and Gerta Moray -- sheds new light on Emily Carr and her world.

Emily Carr: New Perspectives on a Canadian Icon

This impressive volume is a companion to the exhibition by the same title mounted by the National Gallery of Canada and the Vancouver Art Gallery. Complementing the eight essays are more than 300 colour reproductions from the 1927 Exhibition of Canadian West Coast Art, photographs, tourist brochures and maps. Carr’s early paintings of Native images are intermingled with Haida, Tsimshian and Kwakwaka’wakw masks, house posts, carvings and textiles, as well as a selection of works by artists Anne Savage, W. Langdon Kihn, and Group of Seven members Edwin Holgate and A.Y. Jackson. The reproductions of more than 150 paintings, drawings and caricatures by the artist are the focal point of the volume.

The scholarly language of the essays may be appropriate for AP Art students.
