An introduction to the artists who symbolize the Canadian spirit.

Canada's most renowned artists, the Group of Seven and Tom Thomson, celebrated the country's wild beauty. They saw in the untamed land a reflection of the national spirit, and called themselves "adventurers in paint."

For decades, their work has been instantly familiar to Canadians. But in the early part of the 20th century, these artists were engaged in a struggle for acceptance, mocked by critics and the public alike.

In The Group of Seven and Tom Thomson, author Anne Newlands explores the ambitions and visions of the artists, capturing the cultural and historical realities of their time and bringing to life their artistic response to the Canadian wilderness. The book is illustrated with 40 color works of landscapes, portraits and urban scenes, as well as black and white archival photographs. Readers are introduced to the artists as well as their locations -- turn-of-the-century Toronto, Ontario's wilderness, the Rocky Mountains and the Arctic.

Writing with insight and enthusiasm, Anne Newlands offers an informative introduction to the lives, the work and the times of these important artists.

Do not purchase this book. The printing is defective. I already own this edition and purchased a copy for a friend. This book I received (printed in China) has been manufactured missing the yellow-hued ink. Needless to say, a book of artist paintings is not acceptable if the printing does not come even close tor reproducing the colors of the original art. I've returned mine.
  • Jube
size of book; 9 x 9 1/8 inches.....64 pages.......a color photo of art work on 27 pages......not an in depth book......just gives a small taste of art produced by these people.

I love the group of seven and Tom Thomson (especially as a landscape painter myself). I ordered three books and returned two. Even though it is short, this one has the best selection of paintings. I recommend it.

This slim volume may serve as a taster, or introduction, to the works of the Canadian Artists known as the "Group of Seven". Given its size, the information about each artist is necessarily rather limited: and the same goes, of course for the illustrations -- not very many about one particular artist.
As a (fairly similar) alternative "The Best of the Group of Seven" by Joan Murray may serve.
Both books are well enough produced (including the illustrations) for the sort of book involved.
For in-depth information the reader should look elsewhere (and pay much more!).
