Emily Carr’s birthday

Originally shared by This Day in Canada

On this day in 1871 Emily Carr was born in Victoria BC. She became a noted artist and writer whose work was inspired by the indigenous peoples of the Pacific Northwest Coast. She was one of the first painters in Canada to adopt a Modernist and Post-Impressionist painting style. Latterly her subject matter shifted from aboriginal themes to landscapes—forest scenes in particular. As a writer, Carr was one of the earliest chroniclers of life in British Columbia. She died on March 2, 1945 in her native Victoria.
