Details: The painters who would become the Group of Seven shared a love of Canada's backcountry and impatience with its conservative art establishment. Impelled by the spirit of outdoorsman and artist Tom Thomson, they painted in an aggressively impressionistic style,and in time, effectively established a point of departure for modern Canadian art. These 12 paintings are from the McMichael Canadian Art Collection. & In 1920 a small community of Canadian artists officially became the Group of Seven. As the Group extended its membership and influence, a national art bloomed, reflecting in stunning images the beauty and grandeur of the Canadian landscape. From the McMichael Canadian Art Collection, here are 32 paintings by the core group. Bilingual, English/French. Includes 57 weekly grid and 13 monthly grids, soft cover with flaps, Wire-O bound, 120 pp.
