It was Emily Carr (1871-1945), not Georgia O’Keeffe or Frida Kahlo, who first blazed a path for women artists. Her boldly original landscapes are praised today for capturing an untamed British Columbia and its indigenous peoples just before industrialization would change them forever. Now Susan Vreeland brings to life this fiercely independent and underappreciated figure. (Description taken from amazon.com.)
