Pulmonaria, n.d., by Franklin Carmichael
From his fiery records of fall foliage to his muted portraits of lakes at dusk, Franklin Carmichael (Canadian, 1890–1945) interpreted northern Ontario with a new and distinctively Canadian sensibility. A founder of the Group of Seven, the Canadian Group of Painters, and the Canadian Society of Painters in Water Colour, he spent weekends and holidays among the mountains, forests, lakes, and mining towns of northern Ontario. After many years of work as a commercial artist, Carmichael became the chairman of the Graphic Design and Commercial Art Department at the Ontario College of Art. The plant shown is commonly known as Bethlehem lungwort.
