Emily Carr : new perspectives on a Canadian icon

"This groundbreaking book - based on an equally ambitious exhibition co-created by the National Gallery of Canada and the Vancouver Art Gallery - revisits Emily Carr and her world through the eyes of three distinguished senior curators and seven equally distinguished critics and essayists." "Complementing the essays are more than 300 images printed in full colour or in halftones. Among them are artworks from the 1927 Exhibition of Canadian West Coast Art: Native and Modern and photographs, films, tourist brochures, and maps documenting the British Columbia of Carr's day. However, it is the art that dominates, with over 150 paintings, drawings, and caricatures, as well as rugs and pottery by Emily Carr in addition to works by contemporary colleagues."--Jacket
