The Group of Seven unarguably holds the most far reaching reputation of all Canadian painters. Focusing on the depictions of the Canadian landscape from 1920 to 1933, the group originally consisted of Franklin Carmichael (1890–1945), Lawren Harris (1885–1970), A. Y. Jackson (1882–1972), Frank Johnston (1888–1949), Arthur Lismer (1885–1969), J. E. H. MacDonald (1873–1932), and Frederick Varley (1881–1969). In 1926 A. J. Casson (1898–1992) was invited to join. He was later followed by Edwin Holgate (1892–1977) and LeMoine FitzGerald (1890–1956). This exhibition will feature works by A.Y. Jackson, Frederick Varley, Arthur Lismer and A. J. Casson, showing alongside some of the groups predecessors, Fredrick Verner (1836-1928) and Otto Jacobi (1814-1901).
