Vastness Of A Land

 Continuing on where I left off yesterday. Lake Superior is a 1928 painting by Lawren Harris of the Group of Seven.

Harris painted Coldwell Bay, North of Lake Superior around 1923. His fellow Group member Franklin Carmichael painted Port Coldwell in 1928.

Another Carmichael painting: Snow Clouds is from 1938.

Sarah Robertson was influenced by the Group. This is Joseph and Marie-Louise, dating circa 1930.

Girl And Cat is a 1920 painting by Emily Coonan.

This one speaks to me. Lilias Torrance Newton painted Portrait Of Ethel Southam (Mrs. F.H. Toller) in 1938.

She also painted Nonnie around 1920.

Girl In Yellow Sweater is a 1936 portrait by Prudence Heward.

And I finish today with Edwin Holgate, another member of the Group. Nude In A Landscape dates around 1930.


  1. The "Girl In Yellow Sweater" is my fav today.

  14. @Magiceye: thank you.

    @Jeanie: they do indeed.

    @Bill: thanks!

    @RedPat: me too.

    @Happyone: true.

    @Carol: a pleasure to show them.

    @Ventana: thank you.

  15. The portraits are so interesting -- the girl with the cat looks a little lonely and it makes me glad she has her feline companion .. I think they need each other! The first painting -- the vast prairie with the mountains at a distance reminded me instantly of our trip through Eastern Oregon last year (as some call it, "Oregon's Outback"; so different from the part of the State we live in). It is good to experience all the differences within each of in our big countries as much as we can -- whether in beautiful museums such as you show us or in travel.

  16. Very nice, Snow Clouds is really wonderful.

  17. A wonderful collection first of landscapes then portraits of women. Snow cloud made an excellent segue.

  18. The first painting is very captivating to my eye.

  19. This makes me want to go out and buy some art.
