I HAD AN INTERESTING FRENCH ARTIST TO SEE ME THIS SUMMER: EMILY CARR AND WOLFGANG PAALEN IN BRITISH COLUMBIA. Colin Browne. Vancouver Art Gallery, 2016. Published in association with Figure 1 Publishing, Vancouver. 88 pp. with 69 ills. (54 col.). 23 x 20 cm. ISBN 9781927958780 In English.
Publisher's description: This exhibition catalogue brings together new research concerning the French/Austrian artist Wolfgang Paalen (1905-1959), and the great Canadian modernist, Emily Carr (1871-1945), both of whom dedicated their most productive years to what Paalen called "the direct visualization of the forces which move our body and mind." Accompanying an exhibition at the Vancouver Art Gallery, the catalog will tell the story of how both artists met in Victoria, British Columbia, in 1939, and how the creative vision of each one expanded in reaction to the landscape and the monumental art of the Northwest Coast First Nations.
