The Group of Seven and Tom Thomson Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Notable for the superb quality and the quantity of its color plates, this attractive work surveys the paintings and careers of Canada's celebrated Group of Seven, along with those of Tom Tomson, A.J. Casson, Edwin Holgate, and LeMoine FitzGerald, who were also active in the early 20th-century art scene in Toronto. Organized thematically, rather than by artist, the volume collects together notable works according to subject, including portraits, WWI, and urban and village scenes, with the majority of the works grouped into the geographic areas that the painters depicted, including the east coast, Algonquin Park and Georgian Bay, Algoma and Lake Superior. Each chapter opens with an essay, followed by page upon page of full-page color plates of the intensely colorful works. Annotation ©2012 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
