Emily Carr was a Canadian painter whose work traces many different influences across her diverse oeuvre. Many of her early sketches and paintings were inspired by the indigenous people of the pacific northwest coast after several influential trips to Aboriginal villages. Following a trip to Paris in 1910, Carr’s work experienced a formal transformation which drew heavily on the post-impressionist movements of France. Particularly recalling fauvism, her vibrant color palette and increasingly modern compositions remain important to the canon of post-impressionism, with Carr credited as the first artist to introduce Fauvism to Vancouver.
