Summary
Publisher's description: Emily Carr (1871-1945) was an extraordinary Canadian artist and writer. She is now a national cultural icon and is considered one of the great artists of the Americas. She found inspiration for her paintings in the lush and towering rain forests of the British Columbia coast and in the compelling totem poles that stood in Native villages. This book is based on a special cache of small drawing books that offer a direct connection with Carr's hand, eye, and mind. Spanning the years 1927 to 1930, at a turning point in her life when she was in her mid-fifties, these sketches record seven significant journeys - to isolated Native villages in coastal British Columbia and to eastern Canada to meet fellow artists in the Group of Seven. Two of the journeys were metaphorical - to abstraction and to nature itself - but both were an intrinsic part of all the others, as well as a part of the process of developing the powerful painting style that is uniquely hers. Doris Shadbolt presents a selection of more than 80 of Carr's drawings. Her text, animated by quotations from previously unpublished writings by Carr, takes us along on these journeys, echoing the intimacy and immediacy of the drawings themselves
