Painting Canada Tom Thomson and the Group of Seven

£70.00

Product description

Published 2011 by Philip Wilson Publishers. Dust cover.
This hardback book was produced to accompany an exhibition of the same name organised by Dulwich Picture Gallery and National Gallery of Canada.

Tom Thomson developed an artistic language that captured the unique qualities of the Canadian landscape - dazzling in colour and in tune with the subtle changing of the seasons. After his untimely death, Thomson's friends organised a memorial exhibition, and followed this up by forming probably the most famous artistic force in Canadian art history: the Group of Seven. Lawren Harris, J.E.H. MacDonald, Arthur Lismer, Frederick Varley, Frank Johnston, Franklin Carmichael and A.Y. Jackson created - along with Thomson - a landscape style that to this day influences the way Canadians visualise their own country. Highly revered in Canada, these great artists are virtually unknown outside.
This spectacularly illustrated book, arranged according to the geographical areas depicted, with scholarly essays investigating different aspects of the painters' craft, aims to redress that imbalance.

The book is in good condition throughout, although there is some damage to the top edge of the spine (see photo). Some of the plastic film on the dust jacket cover has come away - it is only noticeable to the touch.
