The Canadian Earth

£21.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Until very recently, the location of this major work, Mountain Forms, has been a mystery. The only record of its existence was a black and white photo in the archives of the National Gallery of Canada. The canvas has at last been located and is reproduced in its original, breathtaking colour for the first time.
The discovery of Mountain Forms was, in a real sense, a major impetus for the publication of The Canadian Earth, a story of the landscape paintings of Tom Thomson and those painter who banded together as the Group of Seven.
In a succinct and readable essay, author Roger H. Boulet follows the trails these artists blazed on their sketching trips. Theirs was a quest for the rediscovery of their own country. Their work gave it a new meaning. The images they created gave the country new beauty and its people a new awareness of their northern identity.
Most of the paintings selected for this volume have been held in both private collections and major public galleries. The majority, however, have never been reproduced before. Those that have been made available to the public have rarely been reproduced in colour, and never with the fidelity apparent in every plate of The Canadian Earth.
