Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A stunning, full-colour collection of the brilliant paintings that revolutionized Canadian art.

In the early twentieth century a group of young artists strived to create, in Lawren Harriss words, paintings that would “embody the moods and character and spirit of the country.” The fifty-four breathtaking colour plates in this book confirm their success. Well-loved landscapes, like Tom Thomsons Jack Pine, appear beside some unexpected treasures like Edwin Holgates Nude in a Landscape. The essays by Joan Murray and Harris give historical context to the Group of Seven, and fascinating captions provide biographical notes and insightful critiques of each members style. No Canadian library is complete without this beautiful volume.

Synopsis:

A revealing look at the individual painters and their drive to create an indigenous art form from their love of the land.

About the Author

Joan Murray was the executive director of the Robert McLaughlin Gallery in Oshawa from 1974 to 2000, and has worked as a curator at the Art Gallery of Ontario and the National Gallery of Canada, among others. She has written eight books and over sixty catalogues on Canadian art.
