Nearly seventy years after her death, Emily Carr’s works continue to capture the grandeur of British Columbia’s landscape and define our vision of the nation. More than one hundred works are reproduced in this collection. Together they showcase the breadth of Carr’s career, from early watercolours in Skidegate and Alert Bay on the northwest coast and charcoal sketches in her mid-career, to the stunning oils of trees, ravens and mountains that characterized her later career.
Beautifully designed, its small format and price is ideal for gift buyers and visitors to the province. This volume is a compendium of some of Carr’s best and most memorable works.
