Something Unnamed

 We begin today with Girl On A Hill, a 1928 painting by Prudence Heward.

More work from the Group of Seven. A.Y. Jackson painted The Beothuk At Bache Post, Ellesmere Island in 1929.

Two more Jacksons are here. At top is Cocked Head Island, from 1930. Below is Camp Mile 108, West Of Whitehorse, from 1943.

This is a Tom Thomson sketch. Northern Lake is from around 1912.

And this is Northern Lake II by Lawren Harris of the Group, dating to 1926.

Two works by the same First Nations artist, Ellen Neel. This is Model Pole

Beside it and facing the other way is First Man Mask.

Emily Carr is often closely associated with the Group of Seven. She found her inspiration in the landscapes of the Pacific Northwest and the First Nations cultures found there. This is her work Something Unnamed, dating to 1937.


  1. You found some interesting paintings to show us.

  2. The Beothuk At Bache Post stands out the most for me. Love the unique style of the art!

  3. The girl doesn´t look that happy...
    I like Northern Lake II best.

  4. Beautiful art work, I love the Northern lake and the Something Unnamed. The Model Pole and mask are both cool.
    Take care, enjoy your day!

  5. ...The Beothuk At Bache Post, Ellesmere Island is my favorite.

  6. The Girl On A Hill looks a tad grumpy. The Model Pole is beautiful.

  7. @Sharon: indeed.

    @roentare: me too.

    @Iris: I think that is part of Heward's style- she wanted the intense glare as opposed to a smile.

    @David: a lot of them.

    @Eileen: thank you.

    @Tom: it stands out.

    @Gemel: thanks.

  8. Me gusta el cuadro de la primera foto, con ese retrato. La mujer parece hablar con la mirada.

  9. It is still the Harris piece that I like the best.

  10. That is some amazing art on display!

  11. Thank you. It is interesting and nice. I like "Model Pole"

  12. Girl on a Hill has a rather enigmatic look. I'd love to see that museum in person. Someday.

  13. Aren't they wonderful.

  14. The paintings are beautiful and so nice to see.

  15. Thomas' "Northern Lake, " reminds me of Maine's Moosehead Lake. Great capture of wind, waves and chill

  16. Tom Thomson's Northern Lake is very appealing to me.

  17. Wonderful series of paintings ~ 1st 2 are my favorites ~ lovely sculptures too ~

    Seeing the good in each moment, or trying anyway
