This chapter examines the historical possibilities of Emily Carr's presence in Cornwall during the Stephens' summer residences there and turns chronological coincidence into art. Generations of scholars have set the stage for bringing Virginia Woolf and Carr into a complex, at times a bit fantastical, relationship. Most recently, within modernist studies, Diane Gillespie brought attention to Carr and her writing on art in a section “The Gender of Modern/ist Painting” in Bonnie Kime Scott's Gender in Modernism. David Tovey, Marion Dell, and Marion Whybrow place Woolf and/or Carr in relation to communities of artists in St. Ives. With the society of St. Ives as basis, the chapter further considers the relationship between Woolf and Carr through vintage postcards, Lily Broscoe, Mrs. McNab, and the cinematic time of To the Lighthouse. It also discusses the postcard exchanges and cinematic visions of St. Ives as embodiments of artistic influence and the influence of art on academic research.

Keywords:   art, Emily Carr, Cornwall, St. Ives, vintage postcards, Lily Broscoe, cinematic time, To the Lighthouse, cinematic vision, artistic influence
