The first major international exhibition of Emily Carr's paintings was held at the Dulwich Picture Gallery in London in the fall of 2014. Conceived to accompany the exhibit was a lavish coffee table book, From the Forest to the Sea, co-published by the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO), the Dulwich Picture Gallery and Goose Lane Editions. It was officially launched at the opening of the AGO’s exhibition of the same name on April 11, 2015.
Edited by Canadian art critic Sarah Milroy and Ian Dejardin, Sackler Director of the Dulwich Picture Gallery, the book features written contributions by acclaimed contemporary artists Peter Doig and Jessica Stockholder; leading Carr scholars Ian Thom, Charles Hill, Kathryn Bridge, and Gerta Moray; Haida hereditary chief and master carver James Hart; Kwakwaka’wakw artists Corrine Hunt and Marianne Nicolson; and anthropologists Robert Storrie and Karen Duffek. Together, they illuminate Carr’s immense legacy and the connections to First Nations culture that inspired her work.
