about this item

The Group of Seven was formed in 1920. At an important time in Canada's history, these talented artists applied their creativity and passion to a visual celebration of Canada as a wild and eminently beautiful land. Their powerful landscape paintings would come to shape the country's long romance with its wilderness and, consequently, its sense of identity.The Group of Seven / Le Groupe des Sept 2017 presents 12 distinctive masterpieces -- some familiar, others lesser-known gems. Founding member Lawren Harris wrote that the Group of Seven "loved this country and loved exploring and painting it." It is this shared concept of Canada as a northern nation for which the Group of Seven is best known, and it is Canada's continued passion for the land and its natural beauty that grants modern relevance to the work of these exceptional artists.

À une époque importante de l'histoire artistique et sociale du Canada, les artistes du Groupe des Sept ont appliqué leur créativité et leur passion à la celebration visuelle du Canada en tant que terre sauvage et belle. Grâce à leurs talents, ces artistes ont donné forme à la longue histoire d'amour de notre pays avec la nature, et conséquemment, ont donné forme à notre identité. Leur caractère artistique distinctif nous captivait alors et continue de la faire aujourd'hui. Ces douze chefs-d'oeuvre provenant des galeries d'art canadien reflètent un pays qui transcende tous les débats concernant l'identité nationale. La passion continue du Canada pour la terre et sa beauté naturelle confère une pertinence moderne aux oeuvres de ces artistes exceptionnels.
