The Vancouver Art Gallery is home to the richest collection of Emily Carr works in the world. We are fortunate to have major pieces from throughout her career, but our collection is particularly rich in her forest paintings from the 1930s, both canvases and works in a medium she began using during that period, oil on paper. Her images depicted the coastal forest landscape, generally around Carr's Victoria home, in a way previously unseen in British Columbian art.
