Emily Carr

Author Code: OECX

Born: Dec. 13, 1871 - Victoria, British Columbia, Canada

Died: Mar. 2, 1945 - Victoria, British Columbia, Canada

Educated in art in San Francisco, London and Paris, Carr returned to Canada and taught art in Vancouver. In 1913, she returned to Victoria and started a dog-breeding business while continuing to paint. In 1927, she was invited by the National Gallery of Canada to exhibit her work and, while in Ontario, she came in contact with the "Group of Seven" artists, which included Lawren Harris. She began to exhibit her work with the group and was greatly influenced by them. At the age of 70, she was told by her doctor to slow down, so she turned to writing and in 1941, published her first book, Klee Wyck, which won the Governor General's Prize in literature. The title of the work was a nickname that a native tribe of Vancouver Island had given Carr and which meant "the laughing one". Carr continued to publish until her death in 1945 and her other works include The Book of Small (1942), The House of All Sorts (1944) and the posthumously published Growing Pains (1946), Pause (1953), The Heart of a Peacock (1953) and Hundreds and Thousands (1966).
