Ten women artists, counterparts of the Group of Seven, are finally being given their due. Long overlooked by critics and historians, they are today amongst the most sought-after Canadian painters. The women of the Beaver Hall Group ventured into a male-dominated art world, lived remarkable lives, and produced exceptional work.
This beautifully produced book portrays the life and work of Emily Coonan, Nora Collyer, Prudence Heward, Mabel Lockerby, Mabel May, Sarah Robertson, Anne Savage, and Ethel Seath. Long-lost catalogues, old newspaper reviews, and personal papers document their story, and more than 60 reproductions bring to light paintings that have lain hidden for more than fifty years.

Evelyn Walters' expertise on the Beaver Hall Group is an outgrowth of her 1990 doctoral thesis and of research for a personal art collection. After teaching in France and then Montreal, she recently moved to Toronto, where she has spent the past few years exploring the Toronto art scene.Review:
