Since I have not been blogging much lately due to that October injury, I thought this would be interesting The group of Seven represent the emergence of a Canadian National Art. Much to say about them and to discover. The best collection is at the Toronto’s AGO- Art Gallery of Ontario- A definite Must see and extensive collection


A lovely recent post on Orion Magazine’s Facebook page:

“2015 marks 95 years since the Algonquin School painters mounted their first exhibition. Also called The Group of Seven, its members’ works were inspired by the Canadian landscape. They believed that a distinct Canadian art could be developed through direct contact with nature, a wonderful mission statement for this, their country’s first major national art movement.”
