We begin today with The Red Maple by A.Y. Jackson of the Group of Seven, painted in 1914.
Nearby is a sculpture by an artist not of the Group, but whose sensibilities fit in with their yearning to capture how a place feels in addition to how it appears. Walter Allward created The Storm around 1920; years later his masterpiece would be the Vimy Memorial.
The Hilltop is a 1921 painting by Franklin Carmichael of the Group.
I took some time to photograph some of the collection of paintings on the opposite wall of this large space. At present it's just a scan code available to identify these, and I didn't scan it.
This one, however, I know. Mortgaging The Homestead is an 1890 painting by George A. Reid.
This one particularly enchants.
Another look at that canoe, with some of the works of the Group of Seven beyond it.
Slipping into an adjoining space, I noted this. For King And Country is a 2015 piece by Barry Ace, a commentary on both the bravery of his indigenous father to serve in combat, as well as the refusal of his rights afterwards.
