Young, spirited and rebellious, Emily Carr escaped a strict Victorian household to study art in the Paris of Picasso and Matisse. In middle age, she shook the dust of acceptable society from her shoes and began a passionate journey into the wilderness of British Columbia; the power of her genius made her one of the twentieth century's great painters. Emily Carr's passionate nature paintings have been compared to those of Georgia O'Keeffe, Edvard Munch and Vincent van Gogh. This volume pairs 40 of Carr's most popular paintings with quotations from her writing, which is still widely read today. The introductory text by Robin Laurence tells the story of Carr's unconventional life, and the development of her art. Designed with a focus on the seminal works of Carr's career, and packaged as an affordable paperback, Beloved Land is an ideal gift book. Emily Carr has begun to gain international notoriety, beginning with her exhibition with O'Keefe & Khalo in 2002.
