Emily Carr's passionate, vibrant nature paintings have made her one of Canada's best-known and best-loved artists, drawing favorable comparison to the work of Georgia O'Keefe, Edvard Munch, and Vincent van Gogh. She was also a popular writer whose books are still widely read. Beloved Land: The World of Emily Carr pays tribute to the art and writing of this singular talent who dedicated her life to portraying the powerful majesty of the coastal landscape, the lush rain forest, and the monumental totem poles carved by the native people of British Columbia. The 40 full-color paintings included are from the collection of the Vancouver Art Gallery and rank among her most popular. Each is accompanied by short quotations from her writing. An introduction by Robin Laurence explores the life of this unconventional and gifted woman.
