Forest Lover is an uneven fictionalized biography of her life as a struggling female painter. I find the woman and her work to be fascinating, but this retelling of her life leaves much to be desired. The story begins with Emily as a grown woman trying to scratch a living as an artist.

In her acclaimed novels, Susan Vreeland has given us portraits of painting and life that are as dazzling as their artistic subjects. Now, in The Forest Lover, she traces the courageous life and career of Emily Carr, who?more than Georgia O?Keeffe or Frida Kahlo?blazed a path for modern women artists. Overcoming the confines of Victorian culture, Carr became a major force in modern art by capturing an untamed British Columbia and its indigenous peoples just before industrialization changed them forever. From illegal potlatches in tribal communities to artists? studios in pre?World War I Paris, Vreeland tells her story with gusto and suspense, giving us a glorious novel that will appeal to lovers of art, native cultures, and lush historical fiction.
Reviews about Forest Lover, the (Lib)(CD) (7):
Imagine painting with mosquitos thick as fur on your hands. Or standing in a deserted village of silence, surrounded by trees with ancient coffins splitting apart. Or staring up at 60-foot totem poles carved with Eagles, Ravens, Bears and Whales trying to communicate their message. Or being scrutinized by a 20-foot ogress—Dzunukwa—with nipples carved into Eagles’ heads with eyes and beaks. In The Forest Lover, Susan Vreeland gives us more than a biography of the painter Emily Carr. She gives us an unforgettable experience.
Leaving the loneliness of the Pacific Northwest, Emily Carr goes to Paris to see and learn Impressionism. The description of her changes in painting style—including trading “female” watercolors for the more advanced medium of oil—is so intense that the reader can feel the paint piled on the canvas This reader could not resist looking down at her hands, expecting to see red mixed with deep violet and sun-stroked cadmium yellow.
Emily Carr is the kind of person I would have loved to know as a friend. A rebel, she befriends Native American women, some who have lost their children to the white man’s legacy of Small Pox and other diseases, attends an outlawed (by the Canadian government) Potlatch ritual and comes close to taking a fur trapper as a lover as she is seduced by the feel of the mink furs lining the floor of his tent. And anyone who has ever loved a dog will understand the type of person the artist was. Snubbed by art patrons she nevertheless continues to document the totem poles that are being sold by non-Natives and bravely enters villages emptied by government “relocations” of the Native population in order to do so.
This is a book about the artist, Emily Carr, but also about art, women, and government greed, powerful men who are able to decimate populations when the Missionaries fail. I have the Kindle version and my only complaint is that there were not enough pictures of her work, but Google images are just a tap away on a Kindle Fire and magically, there are her works, big, bright and bold like the book about her.
I love all of Susan Vreeland’s works. This one is particularly moving given I live in Western Washington State and often marvel at the intense, swaying green-ness of the places around me. That another artist felt the same is comforting and inspiring. I hope to visit the museums and galleries that contain Emily’s life works sometime before I die.
I'm a fan of Vreeland's writing becausde of her excellent style and her excellent research. I have to say I have have never been a fan of Emily Carr's painting although, as an art historia, I admitedly prefer traditional and Impressionist 19th-century paintings. However, I learned a lot about Emily Carr, what drove her, her process and the progression of her styles and have a great deal more respect for her work. She was obviously an amazing woman and the Canadians are lucky to have her as a native daughter. I recommend this book.
This is a decent introduction to Canadian artist Emily Carr. As many artists of that period, it was difficult for a woman to find standing in the art community. The misunderstandings that resulted from her interest in Canada's first people made her career even more of a challenge. Some of Vreeland's other books are better, but this carried me along and made me interested enough to learn more about Carr and her contemporaries.
I discovered this book after reading The Brutal Telling by Louise Penny who first introduced me to Emily Carr, the artist who memorialized the totems on Canada's Charlotte Islands. While being listed as a novel, Susan Vreeland, the author of The Forest Lover, has thoroughly researched the life of Carr and relayed it in story form. I had loaned this book to an acquaintance and never got it back. It was such a compelling story that I wanted to read it again. Carr, a reclusive woman, devoted her life to her art. Her paintings of the Totem Poles on Ninstints are some of the few remaining images of these once colorful artifacts which the new settlers considered the work of heathens and destroyed most of them. As I immersed myself in the story, I forgot I was reading a novel as I entered the vivid world of Emily Carr and traveled with her on her journeys.
Really fascinating book about a painter I already loved. A few photos would have been nice as I found myself frequently searching for images of her work. I deducted one star as the first few chapters were very difficult to sort out in terms of chronology and the order in which she made her first visits to the tribal locations.
