For this Casual Friday, I want to tell you about Emily Carr. The most important artist in Canada. Sometimes you even can think that is the only one. The Art University of Vancouver was called Emily Carr for some reason. The Canadian Encyclopedia describes her as a “Canadian icon” for a reason. Canadians LOVE Emily Carr.
Emily Carr was an artist and writer inspired by the indigenous peoples of the Pacific Northwest Coast at the begging and Canadians landscapes after. She was kind of obsessed with paint threes scenes, and she’s very famous because it’s said that she’s the only one who could capture the real essence of the forest.
She was the first painter in Canada to adopt a modernist and post-impressionist painting style.
As a writer, Carr was one of the earliest chroniclers of life in British Columbia.
You can visit hers childhood house in Victoria. Emily Carr House, is a National and Provincial Historic Site located at 207 Government Street in Victoria, B.C. Canada. The birthplace of the internationally renowned Emily Carr, they are an interpretive centre dedicated to her art, writings and life.
This weekend the weather is not going to be very cool, so we decide to include something inside and we will invite all the people to go to the Emily Carr House!
