About this title


Moray (art history, U. of Guelph, Ontario) has written a fascinating and well-researched history on Canadian artist Emily Carr's expeditions to witness and document native art in British Columbia. More than a history, Moray makes a forceful argument for Carr's conscious attempt to represent Native art in a manner consistent with Native life and belief, in part as a critique of non-Native national and religious policies. The text is well illustrated with many period photos, the paintings of other artists, and Carr's own drawings and watercolors. In addition, there are 83 full-page color plates of Carr's works, making this a splendid and full resource. The volume, which is oversize (8.75x12.25"), is co-published by U. of Washington Press and the U. of British Columbia Press (their ISBN: 978-0-7748-1282-5).
