Charles Edenshaw is the first survey of this iconic figure in Northwest Coast art, produced in collaboration with the Vancouver Art Gallery to coincide with a landmark exhibition of Edenshaw's work. The book brings together the largest number of his works ever assembled and offers a rare opportunity to view his legacy. Working in the late-nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries, Edenshaw was an exceptional carver of wood, silver and argillite, imbuing traditional Haida design with an innovative and elegant personal style. Recognised in his time as an outstanding carver, his work continues to be a great inspiration to those who visit the many prominent museums around the world that hold his acclaimed artworks in their collections. Not only do these remarkable objects tell us much about Haida culture, but they are truly sophisticated in their aesthetic achievement. Charles Edenshaw provides a useful context to the Haida tradition and explores Edenshaw's Haida roots, including interviews with his descendants still based in the region. Edenshaw's distinctive style is addressed, along with issues surrounding the attribution of Haida artworks. Much attention is also given to the legacy of Charles Edenshaw and the contemporary artists that he influenced; the book includes interviews with contemporary artists Raymond Boisjoly, Neil Campbell, Robert Linsley and Isabel Rorick. Packed with lavish illustrations and beautiful colour photography of Edenshaw's work this title is essential for anyone with an interest in Northwest Coast art. 280 colour and b/w illustrations
