In life and on canvas, Tom Thomson (1877–1917) evoked the spirit of the Canadian wilderness. Around 1909, he met some of the artists who would eventually found the famed Group of Seven, Canada’s first national school of painters. These menbencouraged Thomson to develop his artistic skills and introduced him to new art theories and techniques. In turn, the outdoorsman imparted to the group his love of the north woods, frequently accompanying them on sketching excursions. He developed a personal style—characterized by bold brush strokes, an expressive use of impasto, and rich colors—that conveys strength, palpability, and a deep, affectionate familiarity with the landscape. This set of notecards reproduces four of his best oil paintings.
