Emily Carr is everywhere in the upper North America. It is an easy read and author writes of her contributions to the Upper America regions. It is a slim book, paperback...... but don't let that fool you, it is stacked with color photos and pictures of her and her contributions to art and it captures her in everyday living. i learned a lot about the North American painters while reading this book. She is bold, her work is bold, wonderful tree paintings. This artist would recommend this book...... lots to learn just enough information.

Inspired me to want to see the original paintings.

I bought this as she was one of the group of seven. I have books of the other members and for the most part they have some colour prints with many black and white illustrations. This is NOT such a book. All but one of the introduction are black and white but the approximately 50 others are in colour. About 10 are double page and they are large prints, not small photos. Before buying this book my impression was she was a minor member but her prints in this prove she belongs as a central figure in the movement. There are several totem paintings, many landscapes and even a few abstract landscapes. Her use of yellow and white make for some very interesting combinations. This book is worth every penny, in my opinion, and I have about 500 artbooks. Few of the smaller ones can compare.....shu

This little gem of a book features color reproductions of several paintings created by Emily Carr. Each image is paired with a bit of her writing, so that one has a sense of what she was thinking during or shortly after painting a particular landscape. This book is an ideal introduction to the art and prose of Emily Carr--not too long and not too short. It makes me want to see and hear more from this admirable Canadian woman.
