Emily Carr was born on December 13, 1871, in Victoria, British Columbia. In 1898 Carr made the first of several sketching and painting trips to aboriginal villages, but soon sought education elsewhere.

Determined to further her knowledge of the age’s evolving artistic trends, in 1910 Emily began her studies at the Académie Colarossi in Paris. She returned to British Columbia in 1912, committed to documenting the First Nations cultures of British Columbia. Carr’s artistic practice was heavily influenced by the Group of Seven and in particular Lawren Harris.  In 1927, Emily was invited to show her work at the National Gallery for a major exhibition on West Coast art. The first time her work was featured in a major national exhibition.
