Emily Carr Collected


Product Description

   Few Canadian artists are as revered as Emily Carr. Born in 1871, she grew up in a socially conservative environment, away from the major art centers. Critics at the time considered her early paintings accurate and skilled but lacking energy and depth of feeling. Against the odds, Emily Carr found success at the age of 57 when she was embraced by the Group of Seven. Her later works earned her status as 'an artist of stunning originality and strength': a woman who succeeded in a largely male world. She brought the power and beauty of coastal rainforests, and respectful glimpses of First Nations culture, to galleries in Toronto, New York and beyond. Nearly 70 years after her death, this collection of beautifully reproduced art showcases the breadth of Carr's career. It is a perfect introduction to her work and a lovely gift for Carr aficionados. In association with the Vancouver Art Gallery.
