Emily Carr Boxed Notecards

$16.95 $8.48 Sale

Published with: the Art Gallery of Ontario

Similar to the Group of Seven, Emily Carr was inspired to paint her immediate environment, which in her case was along Canada’s Pacific West Coast. Upon her return home from two years of study in France in 1912, Carr struck out from her home in Victoria, BC, to document First Nations villages and artifacts. She began to experiment stylistically, transforming her earlier depictions with a brighter palette applied with a freer, more modernist touch. The paintings reproduced for this set of notecards showcase her distinctive approach in capturing the physical and sensory experience of the land and its peoples. Contains five each of the following notecards: Western Forest, c. 1931 Kispiax Village, 1929 Indian Church, 1929 Potlatch Welcome, c. 1928

Emily Carr

Artist and writer Emily Carr (Canadian, 1871–1945) was infinitely inspired by The British Columbia wilderness and the First Nations culture. Carr (Canadian, 1871–1945) grew up in Victoria, studied art in San Francisco and abroad, and then returned to her beloved Pacific Northwest. Her early works of First Nations villages were not well received by the public, and she quit painting for over a decade. In 1927 she showed work in the Exhibition of Northwest Coast Art in Ottawa, where she was influenced by Group of Seven artist and theosophist Lawren S. Harris. At 57 she traveled into First Nations territories again, brush in hand. Through her landscapes and haunting depictions of totems, Carr is considered the premier painter of Canada’s Pacific Coast.
