Tom Thomson: Decorative Panels Boxed Notecards

$16.95

Published with: the National Gallery of Canada

Ontario native Tom Thomson (1877–1917) became a commercial artist in his twenties and in 1909 was hired at the prominent Toronto engraving firm Grip Limited, a hotbed of talent employing several artists who would later found the famous Group of Seven. In his free time, Thomson, an avid outdoorsman, loved to venture into northern Ontario’s rugged wilderness on painting expeditions. His boldly colored and textured landscapes soon found a following, and in 1915, Dr. J. M. MacCallum commissioned Thomson to paint a series of decorative panels for his cottage on Georgian Bay. Thomson painted seven such panels, four of which are presented in this boxed notecard assortment. The panels are numbered I through IV and date from 1915 to 1916.

Tom Thomson

Tom 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.
