Tom Thomson

1877-1917 Canada/Group of Seven related

 

Brief Biography-Tom Thomson was born in Claremont, Ontario, in 1877. He painted mainly in Algonquin Provincial Park, where he worked as a guide. Had Thomson not died accidentally by drowning at an early age, he would have been an essential part of the "Group of Seven." They were a group of landscape artists in Ontario who developed their unique style. Initially, they all worked as designers at the Grip Design Company in Toronto. Later they became known as the Canadian Group of Painters. Thomson worked closely with group member James Edward Hervey MacDonald, who founded the group. His paintings hang in several Canadian galleries alongside those by the group.
