Alexander, David; John O'Brian. Saskatoon: Mendel Art Gallery, 1995.
English, First Edition, VG, SC, 4to 11 1/2"X 9 1/4", 40 pp.

Very Good quarto, stiff pictorial wraps.  Maroon and black titling to cover, map illustration to pastedown.  Mild shelf wear and soiling to back cover, otherwise tightly bound and unmarked throughout.  40 pp., including illustrations and cataloged exhibition list.  Replete with full-color and black-and-white reproductions, many full page.  Text in English.  Contents include Foreword by exhibition director Terry Fenton.  This vividly illustrated exhibition catalog showcases the amazing, and previously overlooked, oil-on-paper paintings of Emily Carr.  From the Foreword: "This exhibition primarily focuses on two investigations of Carr’s career: the intensive use of a new and flexible medium, and the phenomenon of artistic indebtedness and the anxiety it produces in artists confronting a powerful predecessor.”
