96 pp, 12 1/4" H. Beautifully illustrated with full-page reproductions of watercolours of flowers. "Molly Lamb Bobak was born in 1922, the daughter of H. Mortimer Lamb, art critic and art collector. Her father introduced her to art and artists at an early age - Emily Carr, Frederick Varley, A.Y. Jackson - and her mother instilled in her a love for nature and humble work. She grew up on the West Coast, attended the Vancouver School of Art when Jack Shadbolt was a teacher there, and joined the Canadian Women's Army Corps in 1942, eventually becoming Canada's only woman war artist. In London, she met Alex Colville, Lawren Harris, and Bruno Bobak, whom she married after the war. She and her husband returned to Canada and became an integral part of the Vancouver art scene in the 1950's. They won fellowships, lived in England for a time, and in 1960 moved to Fredericton where she has lived and painted ever since. 'Wild Flowers of Canada' is a very personal book. Friends, family, feelings are examined in the light of present maturity, and reminiscences of A.Y. Jackson, Kathleen Fenwick, Alex Colville, Charles Comfort, Douglas Duncan, Miller Brittain, Frederick Varley, Tom Thomson, David Milne, Donald Buchanan, and many others promient in the world of Canadian art add colour to a sensitive biography by one of Canada's great artists." Tiny bump at bottom corner of both boards. Dust jacket is price-clipped, has light edge wear/wrinkling - mainly at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, a few tiny edge tears - archivally taped, very small dent on front hinge.
