An excellent introduction to the art of a painter famous for her devotion to the landscape of the Pacific Northwest. 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.

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. Robin Laurence is an award-winning freelance writer, critic and curator. She has worked as a visual arts critic for the Georgia Strait and the Vancouver Sun, and is based in Vancouver.

  • By Benjamin Hargreaves on 3 April 2015

    Useful with a lot of quotations from Emily Carr's writings (though some more far reaching ones would have been enlightening) with a 20 page introduction on Carr's work and life. This is mildly bedevilled with 'right-on' politically correct cultural references that are not really very relevant to the artist. Design wise the images are not always given enough space to breathe on the page (i.e. they are mounted too near the edges).
