A reminder to members of City Daily Photo: the theme for January 1st is your best or favourites of the year.
Carrying on with this tour of the Ottawa Art Gallery, here we have Arthur Lismer's Georgian Bay Pines, dating to 1962. Lismer was another member of the Group of Seven.
As was J.E.H. Macdonald. This 1921 graphite sketch by the artist is called Little Turtle Lake.
This is Foothills, Arizona, by Yvonne McKague Housser, done in 1950. Not a member of the Group, she did exhibit with them on occasion, and was a founder of the larger Canadian Group of Painters, along with members of the Group of Seven.
Back to the Group of Seven. A.Y. Jackson was another of their members, and this is Fitzroy Harbour, a 1969 painting. Jackson was a personal friend of the Firestone family, who had connections with the Group as a whole.
Jackson gave a pair of his snowshoes to the family.
Jackson painted Canoe Lake, Algonquin Park around 1963.
Water's Edge, Duhamel, Quebec is a 1968 painting by Jackson.
Near Perth is another Jackson painting.
And today I finish things off with another Jackson memento he gave to the Firestones: one of his sketchboxes.
