One of Canada's leading artists, Emily Carr worked with an Expressionist* painting style on native subject matter that was groundbreaking because it focused on capturing images of the vanishing First Nations' culture of British Columbia, especially along the Coast Salish around Victoria and the Nootka on the west side of Victoria Island.  Although practicality intervened, her initial goal was to paint all the totem poles and villages of these Indians, but she did succeed in stirring (showing 500 of 20358 characters).
