Uniquely Canadian: The Group of Seven
I have a beautiful jigsaw puzzle, Falls, Montreal River by J.E.H. MacDonald. Thank you for all the background information on the Group of Seven. All peaceful paintings!
Lovely post from you, as always. I do, though, think Emily Carr ought to be represented here with a painting. Whether or not she was “officially” part of the group, her relationship with it, by many accounts, was very close. Seems a missed opportunity not to show one of her works in this post.
I have to agree with Mr. MacDonald, Varley's work was too abstract, but overall, I really enjoyed the paintings almost as much as your commentary.
