Visions

 To start today, here we have Georgian Bay, a 1913 painting by Arthur Lismer of the Group of Seven.

Another Lismer work: The Big Rock, Bon Echo dates to 1922.


Lawren Harris was another member of the Group. Here we have his Lake Superior, which is from 1928.



Two more works by Harris. North Shore, Lake Superior is from 1926. As is High Country, Lake Superior.


An artist following in the footsteps of Harris a few years after Harris first started visiting the area. Yvonne McKague Housser painted Rossport, Lake Superior in 1929.



And for today we leave off with this. Edwin Holgate, another member of the Group, painted Early Autumn in 1938.

  7. I love the Big Rock, too. I was surprised at the last one -- it seems we rarely see people in the Group's paintings -- or at least the ones I've seen.

  18. Work by Lawren Harris is easily recognisable. In his later years he painted a lot of abstracts.
