Above : Winter Thaw in the Woods – Tom Thomson
I’ve discovered an interesting blog being written by Julian Beecroft, called Coast to Coast with Tom Thomson and the Group of Seven, in which he is travelling across Canada in search of the landscapes which inspired these under-rated artists to make their bold and stunning redefinitions of the Canadian landscape in the 1920s.
Part one – meet Julian Beecroft
Part two – Halifax to Montreal via Charlevoix County
Part three – Southern Ontario – Toronto and Georgian Bay
There will be seven parts in all it seems and I will be watching this journey unfold. In the meantime, should you be near London, I’d recommend checking out the first major exhibition of Group of Seven artists in the UK in many many years at Dulwich Picture Gallery, Painting Canada – Tom Thomson and the Group of Seven.
