Group Of Seven artist Thomas John Thomson (1877 – 1917) was born near Claremont, Ontario and is the best known Canadian landscape artist of his time.
His iconic work, “The Canoe”, is sure to leave a lasting impression.
“The Canoe” is a landscape painting of an empty canoe banked against small trees along the shore, with a dense forest of pines in the background, painted with thick, directional brushstrokes.
He made his first trip to Algonquin Park in Northern Ontario in 1912. This region provided him with many picturesque themes, expressed in many of Thomson’s most famous works.
Thomson directly influenced a group of Canadian painters that would come to be known as the “Group of Seven”, and though he died before they formally assembled, he is sometimes incorrectly credited as being a member of the group itself.
Despite his short career, Thomson's work has had a great influence on Canadian art.
His paintings hang in private, corporate and public collections across Canada, including the National Gallery of Canada and the Art Gallery of Ontario.
