Three masterpieces by Tom Thomson are hung together. The Pool is from 1915-16.
Burnt Land is a 1915 painting.
And this is The Jack Pine, one of the ones he's best known for, done from 1916-17.
Georgian Bay is a 1913 painting by Arthur Lismer of the Group of Seven.
One last look at this big space.
Afterglow is the title of this 1914 painting by Florence McGillivray. While not of the Group, this painting suits its neighbours well.
Another Thomson: Pine Island, Georgian Bay, done from 1914-16.
The Fire Ranger is a 1921 painting by Franz Johnston of the Group.
I finish today with a sculpture. Passing Rain dates to 1928-29, and is by Elizabeth Wyn Wood.
A Jack Pine in the north is perhaps the most iconic image of all.ReplyDelete

An aside: will you be changing your header soon? The log in the bottom left looks too much like a very dead and bedraggled squirrel, or other rodent.
I can see that, but not until fall.Delete
Such an amazing man, and strange mystery.ReplyDelete
