Review-A-Day

"Vreeland has found perhaps the most appropriate venue yet to express her own exuberant feminism and spirituality. What's more, by immersing herself in Carr's extensive writings, Vreeland has picked up the tenor of the painter's language — her eclectic mysticism, emotional devotion, and single-mindedness. The result is a life story that's sympathetic to a fault." Ron Charles, Christian Science Monitor (read the entire Christian Science Monitor review)

Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"[Vreeland's] robust narrative should do much to establish Carr's significance in the world of modern art." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"A sensitive, sober account of an interesting woman and her times, narrated with respect for the factual record and a minimum of heavy breathing." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"[Vreeland's] dramatic depictions of Carr's daunting solo journeys, arduous artistic struggle, persistent loneliness, and despair over the tragic fate of the endangered people she came to love truly are provocative and moving." Booklist

I fell in love with Emily Carr's paintings of trees when I visited Montreal and saw a special exhibit at the Musee de Beaux Artes. This book really brought her to life for me and gave me new insights into her art. In a serendipitous coincidence I read Louise Penny's Brutal Telling just after I finished this book and it had an Emily Carr connection that was so much richer for having reading this book.
