Emily Carr : new perspectives on a Canadian icon by Emily Carr( Book )

6 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 307 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This groundbreaking book - based on an equally ambitious exhibition co-created by the National Gallery of Canada and the Vancouver Art Gallery - revisits Emily Carr and her world through the eyes of three distinguished senior curators and seven equally distinguished critics and essayists." "Complementing the essays are more than 300 images printed in full colour or in halftones. Among them are artworks from the 1927 Exhibition of Canadian West Coast Art: Native and Modern and photographs, films, tourist brochures, and maps documenting the British Columbia of Carr's day. However, it is the art that dominates, with over 150 paintings, drawings, and caricatures, as well as rugs and pottery by Emily Carr in addition to works by contemporary colleagues."--Jacket
Challenging traditions : contemporary First Nations art of the Northwest Coast by Ian M Thom( Book )

6 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For more than a century, Native Americans were actively discouraged from pursuing their traditional cultures by both the church and state, but they persisted in keeping alive their arts and ceremonies. With the rise of cultural and political activism, Native art is now flourishing on an unprecedented scale. Many artists are examining the meaning and purpose of Native American art in the twenty-first century, while following traditions and boldly experimenting with innovative subjects, techniques, and materials." "Ian Thom explores these contradictions by describing the career, working methods, and philosophy of each artist, all of whom he interviewed especially for this book. He also discusses at least two significant recent works by each artist."

Embracing Canada : landscapes from Krieghoff to the Group of Seven( Book )

6 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Canada's landscape and how people relate to it have been predominant themes in Canadian painting. Exploration of this vast and richly varied environment, people's place within it and their attitudes toward it have been driving forces in Canadian art since the beginning of secular imagery in the country. Whether it was early artists such as Robert Clow Todd and Cornelius Krieghoff documenting the winter wonderland of nineteeth-century Quebec, or The Group of Seven exploring the length and breadth of the country through their practice, succeeding generations of artists have made a significant contribution to our understanding of the country.Embracing Canada: Landscapes from Krieghoff to The Group of Seven combines over 150 works from the Vancouver Art Gallery's permanent collection and an eminent private collection of Canadian painting to present a comprehensive survey of Canadian landscapes made between the mid-eighteenth and mid- nineteenth centuries."--Avant-propos page 7
