The Art of Emily Carr

The Art of Emily Carr Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Flawless prose, splendid reproduction, handsome design–an apt showcase for the artist who painted some of Canadas most magnificent paintings.

This book represents the culmination of Doris Shadbolt's long fascination with the work of Carr, a painter she views as one of the strongest and most individual of Canadian artists. It reflects more than a decade of meticulous research, and excerpts form Carrs own prolific writings have been skillfully woven into the narrative, combining with exquisite reproductions of over 200 paintings, charcoals and drawings, two thirds of them in colour, almost all of them specially photographed for this book.

Never swallowed by the mainstream in art. Emily Carr remained extraordinarily loyal to her inner vision. The world she created lingers persuasively in the Canadian psyche.

Book News Annotation:

Canadian publisher Douglas & McIntyre (distribution in the US is by Publishers Group West) is re-issuing a book which was first published in 1979, and subsequently appeared in paperback in 1987. Known for her many years of curatorial work at the Vancouver Art Gallery, Shadbolt conveys her intimate involvement with the works of Canadian painter Emily Carr (1871-1945). She interweaves interpretive and biographical narrative with reproductions of some 200 paintings, charcoals, and drawings, as well as excerpts from Carr's own writings. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Emily Carr (1871–1945) traveled to remote regions for inspiration for her art, vibrantly chronicling the rich culture of Northwest indigenous people and the dense forest of the West Coast. Carrs spiritually infused work was controversial in its day; today she is considered a master of the style. This book reflects more than a decade of meticulous research and includes reproductions of over 200 paintings, charcoals, and drawings, as well as extensive quotes from the artist, who was also a writer.

Synopsis:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 220-223).
