Abstract (English)

Holubizky’s essay situates Ritchie’s work in the context of Canadian art history, examining her influences and her relationship with her contemporaries. The author argues that Ritchie’s work is a form of Modernism that is grounded in nature and the local. MacHardy considers Ritchie’s practice as an excellent device to frame a discussion of the art history of the Okanagan Valley and to further an understanding of it. 33 bibl. ref.
