Helen Kemp Frye’s Writings on Art

Editor(s): Robert D. Denham

Book Description

Helen Kemp Frye (1910–1986) was an accomplished artist and musician, and she was also the wife of the distinguished Canadian literary critic, Northrop Frye. During the 1940s and 1950s, she played an important role in art education, particularly with the programs at the Art Gallery of Toronto, and even more particularly with art education for children. Her writings on art, collected in this volume, give voice to a very creative individual whose contributions to the cultural life of Ontario are in danger of being forgotten.
