Book Description

Sep 1993
A stunning, full-colour collection of the brilliant paintings that revolutionized Canadian art.

In the early twentieth century a group of young artists strived to create, in Lawren Harris’s words, paintings that would “embody the moods and character and spirit of the country.” The fifty-four breathtaking colour plates in this book confirm their success. Well-loved landscapes, like Tom Thomson’s Jack Pine, appear beside some unexpected treasures like Edwin Holgate’s Nude in a Landscape. The essays by Joan Murray and Harris give historical context to the Group of Seven, and fascinating captions provide biographical notes and insightful critiques of each member’s style. No Canadian library is complete without this beautiful volume.

The Best of the Group of Seven
A well printed book with good colour. I was chiefly interested in the paintings, but found the information on their lives gave me a deeper insight about their choice of subject matter.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Best of the Group of Seven -- Joan Murray 3 Nov 2012
By BCB - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This slim volume may serve as a taster, or introduction, to the works of the Canadian Artists known as the "Group of Seven". Given its size, the information about each artist is necessarily rather limited: and the same goes, of course, for the illustrations -- not very many about any one particular artist.
As a (fairly similar) alternative "The Group of Seven and Tom Thomson" by Anne Newlands may serve.
Both books are well enough produced (including the illustrations) for what the sort of book involved.
For in-depth information the reader should look elsewhere (and pay much more!).
