Above the Gravel Pit in 1937
oil on canvas
Emily is trying to show a scenery that was in 1937. In this painting are a bunch of trees. She paints a bright blue sky and a lake. I think she is trying to show the past times of how it was before.

The record price for this painting from a female artist. It is a picture with a crooked staircase and another one of those statues.
The crazy stair
Emily Carr
War Canoes, Alert Bay 1912
oil on canvas
I think Emily is trying to show canoes that were used during the war. She shows the green areas and houses at the back from back then.
Vanquished, 1930
oil on canvas
I think Emily painted a picture to show how everything vanished. The title is Vanquished so it connects with vanished. All of the place is dark and it looks like it is haunted.



Big Raven 1931
Oil on canvas
Emily paints another picture with the texture and the combination of colours. She shows another statue and the dark and bright sky.
