In their glory days - The much-celebrated "Group of Seven" consisted of 7 Canadian landscape painters who formed an artistic alliance amongst themselves which prevailed (at its peak) in the years from 1920-1933.

While each member of the group developed their own diverse painting techniques (as individual artists) - These 7 men were the ones who initiated the first major Canadian national arts movement.

The original members of the "Group of Seven" were Franklin Carmichael, A.Y. Jackson, Frank Johnston, Arthur Lismer, J.H. MacDonald, and Lawren Harris (who outlived all the other members and died in 1970).

Major collections of these men's work can be found in both the Art Gallery of Ontario in Toronto and the National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa.

Through stills and text - This excellent volume gives you a very good overview of all of the Group of Seven's artistic output as it existed in their heyday.
