Frederick Arthur Verner (1984)

Taken in full, Joan Murray’s career as an art historian, critic and writer concerns a question of perennial interest to Canadians, that is, what it means to be Canadian.

Murray has also written major catalogues on Impressionism in Canada, as well as on the work of many artists as widely diverse as Ray Mead, Guido Molinari and Carl Beam, and on many women artists such as Isabel McLaughlin and Alexandra Luke.
