Emily Carr

Emily Carr (December 13, 1871 – March 2, 1945) was a Canadian artist and writer who was inspired by the Indigenous peoples of the Pacific Northwest Coast.

One of the painters in Canada to adopt a Modernist and Post-Impressionist style, Carr did not receive widespread recognition for her work until she changed subject matter from Aboriginal themes to landscapes—forest scenes in particular.

As a writer Carr was one of the earliest chroniclers of life in British Columbia.The Canadian Encyclopedia describes her as a "Canadian icon".
