Monday Morning Museum: The Group of Seven

The Group of Seven – Canada from 1920 to the 1960s
The Group of Seven — sometimes known as the Algonquin school — was a group of Canadian landscape painters from 1920 to 1933… Believing that a distinct Canadian art could be developed through direct contact with nature,[2] The Group of Seven is most famous for its paintings inspired by the Canadian landscape, and initiated the first major Canadian national art movement. – Wikipedia.org

In addition to Franklin Carmichael (see art example below), other members of the Group of Seven are Lawren Harris, Alexander Young Jackson, Frank Johnston, Arthur Lismer, James Edward Hervey MacDonald and Frederick Varley.
