  • One of the first painters in Canada to adopt a Modernist and Post-Impressionist painting style, Carr did not receive widespread recognition for her work until the subject matter of her painting shifted from aboriginal themes to landscapes—forest scenes in particular.
  • As a writer, Carr was one of the earliest chroniclers of life in British Columbia.
  • The Canadian Encyclopedia describes her as a "Canadian icon".
