The art of Emily Carr

Four Pictures by Emily Carr
by Nicolas Debon

The pivotal moments of Emily Carr's life are depicted in comic book format in this original book. Each moment uses Carr's paintings as reference points. Cedar House describes her stay among Vancouver's first nations people, Autumn in France finds her struggling with despair and illness, and in Silhouette, she finds a mentor in fellow artist Lawren Harris. The final chapter, Beloved of the Sky, has a wonderful double-page spread that captures Carr's embrace of spirituality in both her painting and her life.
