Emily Carr is one of those exceptional painters of clear perception and defiantly individualistic. focus whose art transcends her origins and training. Underlying her work almost from its modest beginning, form early conventional watercolours through vigorous Post-Impressionist oils, is a sense of nature work has been compared to that of Edvard Munch and Georgia O'Keeffe, she has gained her niche in the mainstream of twentieth-century painting via the intensity of her inspiration.
Doris Shadbolt, Canada's leading authority on Carr, as well as one of its distinguished curators and art historians, her reassesses the various themes of Carr's life, showing how this remarkable British Columbia woman, often working in artistic isolation, drew upon an unshakable inner vision to create magnificent works based on West Coast indigenous art and landscape.
The 125 plates, some never before published, help capture the essence of one of Canada's most compelling image makers.
