Drinks will be served in the Main Hall at Moor Park Mansion.
From 1912 Tom Thomson and the ‘Group of Seven’ revolutionised Canadian painting. Some were war artists who went on to produce wonderful portraits and townscapes, but all were inspired by the Canadian landscape and the wilderness to the ‘north’. The early focus was on Algonquin Park near Toronto – into which Tom Thompson mysteriously disappeared in 1917. The others continued throughout the 1920s and 1930s and moulded the way Canadians looked at their land. The talk will discuss the main artists within the group (including FH Varley, Lawren Harris and AY Jackson) and show many of their defining paintings.
