Synopsis: Carr, a Canadian, O'Keeffe, an American, and Kahlo, a Mexican, were not close during their lives, but Udall (an independent art historian in Santa Fe, New Mexico), in this carefully reasoned and illuminating study, effectively brings many aspects of the artists' works together to demonstrate a kind of zeitgeist they shared as women developing often surprisingly similar, non-traditional themes in the 1920s. Links between their works are developed in the areas of nationalism, identity, gender, nature, and self through discussion of their paintings, psychology, and artistic influences. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

From the Inside Flap: This original and thought-provoking book compares the art, lives, and achievements of three great artists of the Americas: Emily Carr (1871-1945) of Canada, Georgia O'Keeffe (1887-1986) of the United States, and Frida Kahlo (1907-1954) of Mexico. Each became her country's preeminent woman painter in the twentieth century, and all explored similar issues in their painting. Sharyn Udall shows how each artist searched for an authentic, personal identity and analyzes in detail the issues these women faced in relation to nationality, nature, gender, and the creation of a personal mythology.Although their work is visually disparate, certain interesting themes connect Carr, O'Keeffe, and Kahlo. Udall draws on rich archives and uses specific works of art to illustrate the differences and similarities among the three. She demonstrates how a profound identification with nature led each artist to a lifelong exploration of its forms and symbolism. Further, each painter felt a special connectedness to the earth and to nature in her region. Udall also looks at the different ways each artist entwined her private-and in all three cases, deeply spiritual-self in her artistic identity and the unique ways each established a public identity. By viewing the work of Carr, O'Keeffe, and Kahlo collectively, Udall shows, we illuminate in new ways the art of a continent.This book is the catalogue of an exhibition organized by the McMichael Canadian Art Collection that will open in April 2001 and will travel in 2001 and 2002 to the Santa Fe Museum of Fine Arts; the National Museum of Women in Art, Washington, D.C.; and the Vancouver Art Gallery.
