Tom ThomsonTom Thomson (Canadian, 1877–1917) loved the rough country of northern Ontario. An avid outdoorsman and backcountry guide, he had a brief but brilliant art career profoundly influenced by the Canadian landscape. After a slow beginning as an artist, he found his stride and created hundreds of sketches recording his impressions of the wilderness in small oils remarkable for their vivid color and bold brushwork. Many of Thomson’s paintings were executed in only a few hours but are nonetheless emblematic of Canadian art. Thomson would not live to see the birth of the Group of Seven, yet despite his untimely death in 1917, his name became synonymous with the Group, and together their works have come to symbolize a distinctly Canadian identity.
Just a beautiful collection of Thompson prints in post card size. I look forward to sharing these while helping keep the U S Postal Service in business.
The Tom Thomson postcards are beautiful. Not sure I want to pull out any to send.
i routinely send out a lot of postcards to my friends and need a large supply. Pomegranate has the best selection of books. I probably have 20 books which never fail to cheer up my friends.
