Emily Carr Statue in Victoria, Canada

Victoria-born Emily Carr is one of Canada’s most revered artists. Experts characterize her paintings as a unique blend of Modernistic and Post-Impressionist. Early in her career, she focused on Indigenous people themes. She later shifted to British Columbia landscapes. The Group of Seven – influential painters from 1920 through 1933 – called her The Mother of Modern Arts. This “Our Emily” statue by sculptor Barbara Paterson was erected in 2010. On Carr’s shoulder is her pet Javanese monkey named Woo.
