Filled with national pride, a small community of artists came together in 1920 to form the Group of Seven, whose objective was to produce distinctly Canadian imagery. The impetus for this association was Lawren S. Harris (1885–1970), who firmly believed in the need for a national art movement. Harris painted the Canadian landscape with enthusiasm, capturing the majesty of its wilderness and its inherent spirituality. As he explained, painting nature was more than merely recording her seasons and trappings: “The artist moves slowly but surely through many transitions toward a deeper and more universal expression. From his particular love, and in the process of creating it, he is led inevitably to universal qualities and toward a universal vision and understanding.”
The two captivating images in this folio are from the McMichael Canadian Art Collection, Kleinburg, Ontario. Each work intimately reflects the beauty and essence of the rugged Canadian scenery.
