Starting off today and continuing with the theme of Canadian artists abroad, here we have Port-Blanc In Brittany, a 1906 painting by Marc-Aurele de Foy Suzor-Cote.
It is paired with this bust, Head Of A Woman, by Alfred Laliberte.
Here we see another painting by Suzor-Cote. Winter Landscape dates to 1909.
In The Laurentians, Winter is a 1910 painting by Clarence Gagnon.
Here we have Winter Evening, Quebec, a 1905 painting by Maurice Cullen.
Now we start seeing some of the artists we'll be focusing on in coming posts with these three paintings. The Group of Seven was a group of Canadian artists who exhibited formally together for several years starting in 1920, drawing from the landscape of the country as their subject. The membership changed here and there over the years. Tom Thomson, who was friends with the founders and would have been a member himself had it not been for his untimely drowning in 1917, shares their style and is generally grouped together with the rest of the group in galleries. Two paintings here: Thomson painted In The Woods, an undated painting. Below it is Study For 'Sumacs', a 1915 painting by Franklin Carmichael.
Alongside these two is this one, by another member of the Group. A.Y. Jackson painted Frozen Lake, Early Spring, Algonquin Park, in 1914.
This is Breton Girl, by James Wilson Morrice, dating to 1896.
I'll leave off for today with this panel.
