Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Some can be active to a great age but enjoy little, observed Emily Carr shortly before her death in 1945. I have lived. The impressive scope of Carr's art and her unorthodox life are the subjects of art educator Anne Newlands' latest book. In a text that skillfully blends selections from Carr's own writings with illustrated commentary, Newlands creates a delightful look at one of Canada's best-known artists. Emily Carr: An Introduction to Her Life and Art will lead you to the West Coast, where Carr spent much of her life in a world of richly drawn First Nations villages and totems, dark, haunting forests, wild beaches and vast skies. There, you will meet the unconventional woman — the little old lady on the edge of nowhere, as she called herself — who helped define the face of Canadian art.

Synopsis:

A highly accessible guide, Emily Carr: An Introduction to Her Life and Art provides a rewarding initiation into the world of this individual artist--one of the most memorable citizens of the century, a woman who defied decorum, the demands of her family, and the smother expectations of the Victorian age to live an inspired and unconventional life as an artist. Full-color throughout.
