Schooled in French impressionism and filled with national pride, a small community of artists came together in 1920 to form the Group of Seven, whose objective was to produce distinctly Canadian imagery. The impetus for this association was Lawren S. Harris (1885–1970), who firmly believed in the need for a national art movement. When the Group organized, a spiritual eighth member was present: Tom Thomson (1877–1917), the artist and outdoorsman around whom the others had originally gathered before his untimely death. Through their spectacular paintings and adventurous spirit, these celebrated artists have shaped Canadian art and identity. Contains five each of the following holiday cards: Snow Fantasy, c. 1917 Mount Robson, c. 1929 Snow in the Woods, 1916 Wood Interior, Winter, 1916

Tom Thomson (Canadian, 1877–1917) loved the rough country of northern Ontario. An avid outdoorsman and backcountry guide, he had a brief but brilliant art career profoundly influenced by the Canadian landscape. After a slow beginning as an artist, he found his stride and created hundreds of sketches recording his impressions of the wilderness in small oils remarkable for their vivid color and bold brushwork. Many of Thomson’s paintings were executed in only a few hours but are nonetheless emblematic of Canadian art. Thomson would not live to see the birth of the Group of Seven, yet despite his untimely death in 1917, his name became synonymous with the Group, and together their works have come to symbolize a distinctly Canadian identity.
