Painting Friends - The Beaver Hall Women Painters
Publisher: Vehicule Press
Painting Friends tells the story of ten Montreal women who met at
art school in the early 1900s and formed friendships that lasted all their
lives. They had successful professional careers, exhibiting with the Group of Seven and at international exhibitions during the 1920s and 1930s. Despite their achievements, they have been largely overlooked by art historians. Painting Friends is the first book-length study of these gifted women--Emily Coonan, Nora Collyer, Prudence Heward, Mabel Lockerby, Mabel May, Kathleen Morris,Lilias Torrance Newton, Sarah Robertson, Anne Savage, and Ethel Seath.

In 1920, a group of young Montreal women artists formed the
nucleus of what would later become known as the Beaver Hall Hill Group.
Together, they created an artistic environment of mutual support that lasted for more than three decades. By Woman's Hand explores this unique group through the eyes of Prudence Heward, Sarah Robertson and Anne Savage, its three most prominent members.
