Emily Carr Boxed Notecards
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.
