The physical and conceptual landscape of British Columbia has changed dramatically over the past two centuries and artists have been at the forefront documenting and interpreting subtle and dramatic changes to its social and material landscapes. This profusely illustrated publication focuses on works created between 1858 and 1950 and chronicles the views and experiences of some of the country’s most accomplished artists. Through their sketches, drawings, watercolours and prints, a sense of the region with its urban and rural constituencies emerges and speaks to the uniqueness and sense of place that has since become known as British Columbia. Artists featured include Jack Shadbolt, Emily Carr, Jock Macdonald, A.Y. Jackson, B.C. Binning, Lawren Harris, Maxwell Bates, Toni Onley, Ann Kipling, Laurence Paul Yuxweluptun and Roy Arden.
