Exclusive to the Royal Museum Shop this 8 x 11″ reproduction printed on birch features one of the iconic Emily Carr images in the Royal BC Museum’s collection.
Each wood canvas will vary with its style of grain, colour and markings. We like to think of it as having its own personality. Due to this, your print may look slightly different than the picture shown.
Each wood canvas is very easy to hang. A routed groove runs the entire width of the print and simply secures with the use of a wall hook or nail.  This reproduction can also sit in an easel on a flat surface.

Description

Emily Carr (1871 – 1945) is recognized as one of Canada’s foremost artists and authors. Art studies led her to San Francisco, England and France, but she was claustrophobic in big cities and longed for the wilds of her west coast home, Victoria. On major sketching trips in 1912 and 1928 to isolated coastal villages Emily bravely battled privation, mosquitoes and rain, determined to produce a body of work that would direct and sustain her creative needs for years. Carr was unconventional, unapologetic, and memorable. She smoked, rode astride a horse, lived with pet rats, parrots, cats, dogs, and a monkey. Stories of her eccentric lifestyle live on, but her powerful artistic and literary interpretations of the coastal landscapes of her home, British Columbia, remain her lasting legacy.

The Royal BC Museum’s Emily Carr collection includes over 100 impressive paintings and a treasure trove of 1000 sketches and handicrafts—diaries, notebooks, scrapbooks, letters and manuscripts—making up the world’s largest collection of Emily Carr materials, one which spans her entire career. Included as well are a wealth of contextual pieces: photographs, research files and sound recordings of interviews and reminiscences. The Royal BC Museum is the proud steward of this exceptional collection, which offers a uniquely holistic view of Carr’s life and work.

Made in Canada using locally milled sustainable wood.
