The North Shore

 Autumn In Algoma is the title of this 1922 painting by J.E.H. MacDonald of the Group of Seven.

November is a 1922 painting by A.Y. Jackson, also of the Group.

Two paintings by members of the group. At top is MacDonald's Mist Fantasy, dating to 1920. Below it is Pic Island, Lake Superior by Arthur Lismer, from 1927.

Lismer painted The Big Rock, Bon Echo in 1922.

October On The North Shore, Lake Superior is another 1927 painting by Lismer.

Here we have three paintings by Lawren Harris of the Group. Lake Superior was one of his favourite places, and throughout his career it would come up time and again in his work.

Pic Island, Lake Superior is from 1924.

North Shore, Lake Superior dates to 1926.

This sketch by Harris is titled Lake Superior, Sketch, no. 63. It dates to 1926.
