A lakeside village with rolling hills and trees in the background and an eagle totem in the foreground.
Emily Carr began her training as an artist with a period of study at the California School of Design in San Francisco. In 1907 Carr travelled to Alaska with her sister, where she encountered the totem pole carvings of the northern First Nations. After a lull in her painting, Carr joined the national exhibition in 1927 where she met the Group of Seven who encouraged her to continue painting. Her most notable work was done after this time with the stylistic influences of Lawren Harris and other modernists, and a subject focus on forest landscapes and totem poles. -Adapted from the Vancouver Art Gallery website.
