The Group of Seven Holiday Card Assortment


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, and 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.
