A comparison between Carr's life and that of van Gogh reveals certain similarities, despite the distance of time and space between them. Both were intensely driven individuals, both were isolated from their peers, and both liked nothing better than to work alone "en plein air" (outside). Given their similarity of working styles, it is perhaps not surprising that both exhibited similar fundamental principals in their artwork. Carr's mature style was the summation of everything she had learned - to capture a unity of movement that flowed between and through all things.
