Description

Unique among the artist's published works for its combination of words and drawings, this charming addition to the Emily Carr Library presents a poignant yet wry account of her convalescence in the English countryside.

 

While studying at the Westminster School of Art in London, England, Emily Carr so undermined her health by overwork that she was sent for complete rest to a sanatorium in the country for eighteen long months. She recorded the story of her convalescence in a sketchbook. Her active mind and restless nature rebelled at the hospital restrictions enforcing rest. Undaunted, she managed to make friends, raise birds and get into mischief.

 

Pause is the final volume in the completely redesigned set of seven books by the legendary Canadian artist and writer, renowned not only for her powerful paintings but also for her extraordinarily vivid prose.
