Emily Carr’s fame as one of Canada’s greatest artists is now undisputed, but for the greater part of her life, her work was ignored or rejected. In 1928, Carr met Lawren Harris in Toronto, and realized with excitement that here at last was the true spirit of the Canadian landscape, captured on canvas. Encouraged by Harris, Carr set out to paint the “unpaintable” trees and totems of the west coast. Her last pictures are overwhelmingly suggestive of the scale and atmosphere of the B.C. forests.
