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.[1] One of the first painters in Canada to adopt a Modernist and Post-Impressionist painting style,[2] Carr did not receive widespread recognition for her work until the subject matter of her painting shifted from Aboriginal themes to landscapes—forest scenes in particular.[1] As a writer, Carr was one of the earliest chroniclers of life in British ColumbiaThe Canadian Encyclopedia describes her as a “Canadian icon”.[3]

Emily Carr (Victoria13 dicembre 1871 – Victoria2 marzo 1945) è stata una pittrice canadese.

Fra le prime pittrici canadesi ad adottare uno stile pittorico modernista e post-impressionista,[1] Carr non ricevette riconoscimenti significativi per il suo operato fino a quando la sua pittura su temi indigeni si convertì a quella di paesaggi e foreste.[2] In qualità di scrittrice, Carr fu una delle prime croniste della vita nella Columbia Britannica. L’Enciclopedia canadese la definisce un'”icona canadese”.[3]
