During Emily Carr’s early years in Victoria, she worked primarily in watercolour. From 1900 to 1903, Carr studied in London and St. Ives, Cornwall, and her watercolours reflect British tradition. Always one to prefer the countryside to stuffy cities, Carr benefited most from her time in the St. Ives artists’ colony, where she painted outdoors in Tregenna Wood, and where her teacher Algernon Talmage had the sensitivity to critique her work on location.

In this detailed watercolour, Carr exhibits a refined handling of the reflections in the rippling water of dock pilings and dockside cranes for loading cargo from the warehouses. Carr’s father Richard was a prosperous merchant with a wholesale firm in the town’s warehouse district along Wharf Street, which may have stimulated Carr’s interest in this subject. Delicate tones of blue and orange dominate, and Carr reflects a slight haze in the atmosphere on the overcast day, making structures close by appear more definite, then fade out in the background. Sensitively painted, Inner Harbour, Victoria, BC is a particularly fine example of her work at this time.

The address inscribed on the original framing backing is that of the Carr family house in Victoria.
