Emily Carr's life and work are familiar, but what kind of world shaped this fascinating artist? In the rigid Victorian era, she championed Northwest monumental art. A nature lover, she kept a boardinghouse in the city. Ten essays by distinguished curators and critics offer compelling insight, examining Carr's interactions with other artists, the influence on her work by the First Nations, and the cultural zeitgeist that shaped her goals and aesthetic. Hundreds of images form a vivid narrative of the times.

Emily Carr might not be a household name in the United States. I wonder if she is even this in Canada. She was definitely a character and an individual whose painting and drawings reflects her affinity to the First Nations of Vancouver Island where she lived. She had an innate sense of the forest and was able to depict it's lively energy in her work.
