Description

Our Maud: The Life, Art and Legacy of Maud Lewis tells the story of Maud's life, and traces her impact on Nova Scotia, her fame, the saving of her painted house, and the Nova Scotia folk art renaissance sparked by her example. The book looks at how Maud Lewis has become a role model for children with juvenile arthritis, her posthumous role in the creation of Atlantic Canada's largest art museum, and how her story has become known around the world, culminating in the hit feature film Maudie starring Sally Hawkins and Ethan Hawke.
