What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"…rich in works seldom seen…"

Ten Canadian women, counterparts of the Group of Seven, are finally being given their due. Long overlooked by critics and historians, their works are today among the most sought-after Canadian paintings. The Beaver Hall women ventured into a male-dominated art world, lived remarkable lives and produced exceptional work. Engaging and beautifully designed, The Women of Beaver Hall portrays the lives and works of Nora Collyer, Emily Coonan, Prudence Heward, Mabel Lockerby, Henrietta Mabel May, Kathleen Moir Morris, Lilias Torrance Newton, Sarah Robertson, Anne Savage and Ethel Seath. With its clear, concise style and more than 65 colour plates, this important reference book is a work of art in itself.
