Description - Emily Carr by Anne Newlands

'Some can be active to a great age but enjoy little,' observed the Canadian artist Emily Carr shortly before her death in 1945. 'I have lived.' The impressive scope of Carr's art and her unorthodox life are the subjects of this book. In a text that skilfully blends selections from Carr's own writings with illustrated commentary, Newlands creates a delightful look at one of Canada's best-known artists. This book will transport you to British Columbia, where Carr spent much of her life in a world of richly drawn First Nations villages and totems, dark haunting forests, wild beaches and vast skies. There, you will meet the unconventional woman - 'the little old lady on the edge of nowhere,' as she called herself - who helped define the face of Canadian art.
