 Wild Men of the North’: Tom Thomson and the Group of Seven

Ross King

In 1924 an exhibition in London of Canadian landscapes, which was highly acclaimed by critics, introduced the public to group of Canadian artists known as The Group of Seven. The landscapes of Canada’s northern lakes and rugged backwoods, painted in a boldly Post-Impressionist style, had been produced by this collective of Toronto-based painters, whose aim was to forge a national school of landscape painting. Ross will introduce us to the artists, including their colleague Tom Thomson, who died in 1917, and discuss their lives and careers.
