Product Description
A.J. Casson Notecard Folio
Alfred Joseph Casson (Canadian, 1898–1992) was born in Toronto, Ontario, and spent his childhood in the southern part of the province—in Guelph and Hamilton. When his family returned to Toronto, he began attending art classes and working as a freelance designer. In 1919 he joined the Toronto commercial design firm Rous and Mann, where he worked under the watchful eye of Franklin Carmichael. The young artist soon began accompanying Carmichael on weekend sketching trips.

A superb watercolorist, Casson—together with Carmichael and Fred Brigden—founded the Canadian Society of Painters in Water Colour in 1925. The following year, he accepted an invitation from Carmichael to join the Group of Seven. The Group’s youngest member, Casson was best known for his depictions of the rural settings of southern and central Ontario.

The two Casson works reproduced in this folio of notecards are from the McMichael Canadian Art Collection in Kleinburg, Ontario—an institution renowned for its devotion to collecting and exhibiting only Canadian art. The McMichael’s permanent collection holds almost six thousand artworks by Tom Thomson, the Group of Seven, their contemporaries, and First Nations, Inuit, and other artists who have made a contribution to Canada’s artistic heritage.

Contains 5 each of the following images:
White Pine, c. 1957
