Group of Seven Canadian Artists Photos
Canadian Group of Seven, established & first exhibited in 1920, captured Canada's outdoor spirit and savage land. The group toured rustic locations together sketching impressions of nature in oil on backpack-size wood or paper boards which they then translated onto full-size canvases back in their studios. Both sketch and large sizes of their paintings are highly valued since the board paintings are often more vibrant. The group's images have become icons of Canada. Original members mostly organized while working as commercial artists for engraving company Grip Ltd. of Toronto.
