Pintores: "The Group Of Seven"

Canadian Landscape Painters, the group was formed in 1920 and consisted of seven members – hence the name: Group of Seven. Franklin Carmichael, Lawren Harris, A.Y. Jackson, Frank Johnston, Arthur Lismer, J.E.H. MacDonald and Frederick Varley.Once the war was over, the informal group reconvened and began to travel throughout Ontario. They sketched landscapes and developed different techniques to better their art. The group was greatly influenced by European Impressionism. It was in 1919 that they began to call themselves the Group of Seven – they couldn’t come up with a name, and so Harris dubbed them the “Group of Seven” and it stuck......................Pero no estaban solos, sino que otros artistas están asociados a él como Tom Thomson, que rondaba los mismos ambientes y tertulias (reconocido por muchos como el gran influyente del grupo así como del movimiento artístico, aunque no pertenecía a él de forma reconocida). A este último se le considera también un personaje enigmático y con mucho misterio a su alrededor, acentuado con su muerte en condiciones un tanto extrañas. Su estilo se considera muy importante en la pintura canadiense, habiendo dejado un gran legado artístico. Se dice que Thomson fue “una parte del movimiento antes de que se le pusiera una etiqueta” (L. Harris, miembro del grupo).
