British Columbia’s untamed wilderness is expressed in the broad, windswept strokes of “Tree in Autumn” by legendary Canadian painter Emily Carr. Considered unladylike by Victorian society, Carr (1871 – 1945) was a rugged individualist whose iconic, powerful style contained elements of Impressionism, Cubism and Fauvism. Her captivating works portray Canadian forests, totem poles and other Native Indian art. Achieving critical acceptance when she was 57, Carr embarked on the most productive phase of her career. Also the writer of seven books, Carr won the Governor General’s Award for Literature in 1942.
