the Life and Work of Mariette Rousseau-Vermette
A book about the life and work of the celebrated Canadian tapestry artist, Mariette Rousseau-Vermette (1926-2006). At the time of her death at 79, she had produced over 640 tapestries, many of which were created through such prestigious commissions as the National Arts Centre, Ottawa (1968), the Eisenhower Theatre, John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Washington, D.C. (1971) and Roy Thomson Hall, Toronto (1982). Despite her long and prolific career and significant influence on the generation of textile artists who followed her, however, little has been written about this innovative artist. The story of Rousseau-Vermette and her contemporaries who worked in a receptive post-World War II environment that embraced the revival of tapestry as high art adds a new chapter to the history of Canadian art and restores these artists' links to it.
