The Group Of Seven

Arthur Lismer was another member of the Group of Seven. This vibrant work is A September Gale, Georgian Bay, done in 1921.


Here we have another Lawren Harris painting, Beaver Pond, from 1921, based on a pond in Algoma. Harris and A.Y. Jackson had an interest in how beavers influenced their landscape.


Pine Island, Georgian Bay is the title of this Tom Thomson work, done over the space of two years, 1914-16.


And for today we finish with one of Thomson's best known paintings, The Jack Pine, done in 1916-17, depicting a view in Algonquin Park.

  8. There are many Group of Seven paintings at the McMichael Gallery in Kleinberg. I usually manage to get there at least twice a year, but sadly, due to Covid, have not been there in 2020.
