One of the most important paintings of Canadian artist Emily Carr was acquired by the Audain Art Museum. Painted in 1911 while Carr was studying in France, Le Paysage was recently added to the Audain’s leading collection of Carr’s works. “What makes this painting phenomenally important in Canadian art history is that it is definitely one of two Carr works that were accepted for the 1911 Salon d’Automne at the Grand Palais,” says Darrin Martens, the Gail and Stephen A. Jarislowsky Chief Curator at the Museum. In 2019 the Museum will mount the first exhibition of Carr’s French work, which so influenced her later development to become Canada’s best-known artist.
