Emily Carr (Canadian, 1871–1945)
Kispiax Village, 1929
This painting shows a First Nations village in the Pacific Northwest, rendered beautifully by Emily Carr. While the painter titled her painting “Kispiax Village,” the more common spelling is “Kispiox,” referring to the village situated within the Kispiox Indian Reserve in British Columbia. Today its totem poles still tower over the land, just as they do in Carr’s dynamic painting, reproduced here for this 1,000-piece jigsaw puzzle.
