Product Description
Arthur Lismer Notecard Folio
Engaging, affable and visionary, Arthur Lismer was a prominent member of the Group of Seven. Born in Sheffield, England, in 1885, he arrived in Canada in 1911. He joined the legendary Grip Limited, the graphic design firm where the story of the Group of Seven often begins.

In 1913, Lismer went on his first painting trip to Georgian Bay, which he called “a paradise for painters.” Even though Lismer travelled and sketched across Canada, Georgian Bay imagery is at the core of his subject matter. The experience of Georgian Bay, as well as of Nova Scotia, gave Lismer a new, intense communion with the constancy of nature in the late 1930s and 1940s, when his painting ideas emerged with new clarity and conviction.

A prolific artist with a wonderful sense of colour and energy, Lismer was also a great teacher. He pioneered art education programs in Toronto and Montreal in the 1920s and 1930s and made a significant impact in the development of Canadian art.

Contains 5 each of the following images:
Sunlight in a Wood, 1930
Buck Grotto, Georgian Bay, 1947
