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.
"[The book] offers a visual feast for anyone interested in the art of Emily CarrÖ"
"Like the new exhibit this catalog puts Emily Carr's work in perspective as an important artist and a Canadian icon."
