The landscapes of Ontario as well as the rest of Canada feature heavily in the artwork of the Group of Seven, a set of Canadian artists of the 1920s who produced a number of impressionist-style paintings depicting the Muskoka region and Algonquin Park, as well as other locations throughout Ontario and nationwide.
Works by the Group of Seven are returning to Britain for the first time since the 1920's at:
Dulwich Picture Gallery
19 October 2011 – 8 January 2012
Permanent collections of artwork by the Group of Seven can be found in Toronto’s Art Gallery of Ontario, Ottawa’s National Gallery of Canada and the excellent McMichael Canadian Art Collection which is located just north of Toronto.
Discover for yourself the simple beauty and vibrant colours of Canada's striking landscapes that so inspired the works of the Group of Seven.
