The Group of Seven unarguably holds the most far reaching reputation of all Canadian painters. Focusing on depicting 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).
During the month of January, we will be showcasing works by A.Y. Jackson, Frederick Varley, AJ Casson and Frank Johnston, alongside a number of lesser known, but equally important Canadian painters of the 20th Century.
