[email protected] Lawren Stewart Harris was a Canadian painter. He was born in Brantford, Ontario and is best known as a member the Group of Seven who pioneered a distinctly Canadian painting style in the early twentieth century. A. Y. Jackson has been quoted as saying that Harris provided the stimulus for the Group of Seven. During the 1920s, Harris's works became more abstract and simplified, especially his stark landscapes of the Canadian north and Arctic. Beginning with the 1940s, he started painting abstract compositions with lines borrowed from nature. He also stopped signing and dating his works so that people would judge his works on their own merit and not by the artist or when they were painted. In 1969 he was made a Companion of the Order of Canada. 勞倫·斯圖爾特·哈里斯 Lawren Stewart Harris 是一位加拿大畫家。他出生於安大略省的布蘭特福德,最著名的是七人小組的成員,他在二十世紀初開創了明顯的加拿大繪畫風格。 A. Y. Jackson被引述說哈里斯為七國集團提供了刺激。在20世紀20年代,哈里斯的作品變得更加抽象和簡化,尤其是他對加拿大北部和北極的鮮明景觀。從20世紀40年代開始,他開始用從大自然借來的線條來繪製抽像作品。他還停止簽名和約會他的作品,以便人們根據自己的優點判斷他的作品,而不是藝術家或他們畫的時候。 1969年,他成為加拿大勳章的同伴。

The Group of Seven, also sometimes known as the Algonquin School, was a group of Canadian landscape painters from 1920 to 1933, originally consisting of Franklin Carmichael (1890–1945), Lawren Harris (1885–1970), A. Y. Jackson (1882–1974), Frank Johnston (1888–1949), Arthur Lismer (1885–1969), J. E. H. MacDonald (1873–1932), and Frederick Varley (1881–1969). Later, A. J. Casson (1898–1992) was invited to join in 1926, Edwin Holgate (1892–1977) became a member in 1930, and LeMoine FitzGerald (1890–1956) joined in 1932. Two artists commonly associated with the group are Tom Thomson (1877–1917) and Emily Carr (1871–1945). Although he died before its official formation, Thomson had a significant influence on the group. In his essay "The Story of the Group of Seven", Harris wrote that Thomson was "a part of the movement before we pinned a label on it"; Thomson's paintings The West Wind and The Jack Pine are two of the group's most iconic pieces.[1] Emily Carr was also closely associated with the Group of Seven, though never an official member. Believing that a distinct Canadian art could be developed through direct contact with nature,[2] the Group of Seven is best known for its paintings inspired by the Canadian landscape, and initiated the first major Canadian national art movement.[3] The Group was succeeded by the Canadian Group of Painters in the 1933, which included members from the Beaver Hall Group who had a history of showing with the Group of Seven internationally.[4][5] Music, Art, Film, Authors, History, Transportation and the Sciences http://www.sherwayacademy.ca

Alfred Joseph Casson, A Canadian Painter and Member of The Group of Seven Authentic Hand Painted Canvas Art (Famous Masterpieces) Free Shipping.... http://www.FamousArtistsofHistory.com/FamousArtistPaintingsOnYourWall.php http://www.GodistheCreator.com Alfred Joseph Casson, OC (May 17, 1898 -- February 20, 1992) was a member of the Canadian group of painters known as the Group of Seven. He joined the group in 1926 at the invitation of Franklin Carmichael. Casson is best known for his depictions of landscapes, forests and farms of southern Ontario, and for being the youngest member of the Group of Seven. The Group of Seven — sometimes known as the Algonquin school — was a group of Canadian landscape painters from 1920 to 1933, originally consisting of Franklin Carmichael (1890--1945), Lawren Harris (1885--1970), A. Y. Jackson (1882--1972), Frank Johnston (1888--1949), Arthur Lismer (1885--1969), J. E. H. MacDonald (1873--1932), and Frederick Varley (1881--1969). Later, A. J. Casson (1898--1992) was invited to join in 1926; Edwin Holgate (1892--1977) became a member in 1930; and LeMoine Fitzgerald (1890--1956) joined in 1932. In 1919 Casson moved to Rous and Mann where he was influenced by and assistant to Group of Seven member Franklin Carmichael to sketch and paint on his own. Carmichael introduced Casson to The Arts and Letters Club of Toronto, where he met many well-known artists, including other Group of Seven members. During the 1920s, Casson continued to paint during his spare time alone and with the Group of Seven. Alfred enjoyed watercolour and in 1925 along with Carmichael and F.H. Brigden (Fredrick), founded the Canadian Society of Painters in Water Colour. After Frank Johnston, a Group of Seven member, left the group in 1921, Casson seemed like an appropriate replacement. Later in 1926, he was invited by Carmichael to become member of the Group of Seven. Ironically, in the same year he also became an Associate Member of the most conservative Royal Canadian Academy. He and Carmichael left Rous and Mann Ltd. in 1926 to join Sampson Matthews. After Carmichael left in 1932 to teach at the Ontario College of Art, Casson became their Art Director and later their vice-president in 1946. In 1924 Casson married Margaret Petry. His father died shortly after his marriage, and he had to take care of and support his widowed mother. After the ending of the Group of Seven in 1932, he co-founded the Canadian Group of Painters in 1933. Several members of the Group of Seven later became members of the Canadian Group of Painters including Lawren Harris, Arthur Lismer, A. Y. Jackson, and Franklin Carmichael. Casson developed a painting style with clear colours and background designs. Alfred "retired" in 1957 at age 60, to paint full time. A.J. Casson died in 1992 at age 93 and is buried on the grounds of the McMichael Canadian Art Collection, along with six other Group of Seven members.

A privately owned work of A. J. Casson's appeared on May 26, 2008, airing of PBS's "Antiques Roadshow." According to the owner, the painting was given to her grandfather by Casson, his friend and neighbour at the time. The work appraised in the $25,000 to $35,000 range. In 1954 he was one of eighteen Canadian artists commissioned by the Canadian Pacific Railway to paint a mural for the interior of one of the new Park cars entering service on the new Canadian transcontinental train. Each the murals depicted a different national or provincial park; Casson's was Algonquin Provincial Park. A large oil on canvas by the Group of Seven's A. J. Casson, Street in Glen Williams, sold for a record $542,800, including buyer's premium on June 1, 2010. The Casson – a leafy, autumnal portrait of a small town near Toronto – carried a pre-sale estimate of $200,000–$250,000, the highest such valuation ever accorded a Casson canvas. Canadian art critic and historian Paul Duval wrote in 1980, "Street in Glen Williams is unquestionably his key autumn portrayal." Bidding for Street in Glen Williams began at $180,000, then bounded in increments of $10,000, then $20,000 before reaching its hammer price of $460,000. The clinching bid came from a western Canadian buyer. The previous record for a Casson, $489,100, including premium, was also set by Joyner, in May 2005. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A._J._Casson

Thomson, who grew up and is buried in the Owen Sound area, was a maverick, a break-away artist who fused a passion for the wilderness with a new style of skillful and experimental painting. Works by Tom Thomson -- who inspired the formation of the Group of Seven through his transformative portrayal of the natural world - and his contemporaries are on permanent display in the gallery's intimate Thomson Room. Exhibitions of Thomson's oil sketches, graphics, memorabilia and archival materials offer unique insight into one of Canada's most influential artists of the 20th century.

He was born in Brantford, Ontario and is best known as a member the Group of Seven who pioneered a distinctly Canadian painting style in the early twentieth century. A. Y. Jackson has been quoted as saying that Harris provided the stimulus for the Group of Seven.

He also stopped signing and dating his works so that people would judge his works on their own merit and not by the artist or when they were painted. In 1969 he was made a Companion of the Order of Canada. On May 29, 2001, Harris's Baffin Island painting was sold for a record of $2.2 million (record up to that time). Before the auction, experts predicted the painting done by one of the original Group of Seven would top $1 million, but no one expected it to fetch more than twice that amount. The painting, which has always been in private hands, depicts icy white mountains with a dramatic blue sky. Lawren Harris's Algoma Hill was stored in a backroom closet in a Toronto hospital for years and was almost forgotten about until cleaning staff found it. The hospital sold it at a Sotheby's auction, in 2005, for $1.38 million CDN. On May 23, 2007, Pine Tree and Red House, Winter, City Painting II by Harris came up for auction by Heffel Gallery in Vancouver, BC. The painting was a stunning canvas from 1924 that was estimated to sell between $800,000 - $1,200,000. The painting sold for a record-breaking $2,875,000. Harris's Nerke, Greenland painting sold at a Toronto auction for $2 million (four times the pre-sale estimate) on November 24, 2008 Harris died in Vancouver in 1970, a well-known artist. He was buried on the grounds of the McMichael Art Gallery, where his work is now held.

Frank Johnston A Canadian Artist and Member The Group of Seven Authentic Hand Painted Canvas Art (Famous Masterpieces) Free Shipping and Free Returns.... http://www.FamousArtistsofHistory.com/FamousArtistPaintingsOnYourWall.php Frank Johnston (June 19, 1888 -- July 19, 1949) was a Canadian artist associated with the Group of Seven. Frank (Franz) Johnston was born in Toronto and like many other Group members, he joined Grip Ltd. as a commercial artist. He studied in Germany from 1904 to 1907. Although his official association with the Group of Seven was brief, his friendship with the artists dated back over a much longer period. In 1910, he left for the United States where he studied art in Philadelphia and worked in commercial design in New York. Johnston's style became increasingly realistic throughout his life, evincing a particular fascination for the qualities of light reflected from snow. This theme recurred in later works, in large narrative paintings of the 1930s and 1940s as well as more intimate examinations of a river valley, the bright blue of the water bending between snow-laden banks. His subjects range from the pastoral countryside of the Wyebridge area, northern Quebec, and the Northwest Territories. He had begun in the 1920s to hold regular solo exhibitions and his paintings found a great following among the public. Unlike many Canadian artists, Johnston was able to achieve considerable financial success in his own lifetime.

Alexander Young Jackson, A Canadian Painter and Member of the Group of Seven Authentic Hand Painted Canvas Art (Famous Masterpieces) Free Shipping and Free Returns.... http://www.FamousArtistsofHistory.com/FamousArtistPaintingsOnYourWall.php Alexander Young Jackson, CC CMG (October 3, 1882 -- April 5, 1974) was a Canadian painter and a founding member of the Group of Seven. Jackson made a significant contribution to the development of art in Canada, and was successful in bringing together the artists of Montreal and Toronto. He exhibited with the Group of Seven from 1920. In addition to his work with the Group of Seven, his long career included serving as a war artist during World War I (1917--19) and teaching at the Banff School of Fine Arts, from 1943 to 1949. In his later years he was artist-in-residence at the McMichael Gallery in Kleinberg, Ontario. In 1919, Jackson and six painter colleagues formed the Group of Seven. These artists were considered to be bold, because the Canadian wilderness had previously been considered too rugged and wild to be painted. Although his name is conventionally associated with this group, he would also remain something of a loner throughout his life. In 1958, he published A Painter's Country, an autobiography dedicated to the memory of Group of Seven member J. E. H. MacDonald, who "visualized a Canadian school of painting and devoted his life to the realization of it". In 1964, Jackson submitted his own design during the Great Flag Debate. It was similar in design to the Pearson Pennant. In 1965, Jackson had a serious stroke that put an end to his painting career. He recuperated at the home of friend and painter Ralph Wallace Burton, and later moved to the McMichael Conservation Estate in Kleinburg, Ontario. Jackson died in 1974, over the Easter holiday in a nursing home in Toronto. He is buried on the grounds of the McMichael Gallery.

Family of 7 Living Completely Off-Grid in Northern Canada!
 
10:09
In this video, we meet Jeff, Rose, and their 5 girls who are living completely off grid on a 40-acre piece of land in Northern British Columbia, Canada. They built their own off-grid house for less than $25,000 with cedar posts sunk into the ground like a pole barn, log rafters, plywood, foam insulation, and a living roof. The house was so affordable to build because they didn't have to excavate or pour a concrete foundation, dig a well, or install a septic system. They have 2 solar power systems to power everything they need. The first solar system is just one solar panel that generates 12-Volt power for their lights, cell phones, and music player. The larger system is a 2.5 Kilowatt solar power system installed on their shop roof with a lithium ion battery bank that powers their full-sized fridge, a chest freezer, washing machine, as well as a mixer, blender and a toaster. They have a backup generator but they only have to use it for about 40 hours per year during prolonged cloudy or snowy periods. All of the water the family uses is rainwater collected from their shop roof and stored in a tank under the shop floor to keep it cool. They carry buckets of water into the house for cooking, dishes and showers. To produce clean drinking water, they filter their rainwater in a passive water filter called a Burkey (check them out here: http://www.berkeyfilters.com). The grey water from their kitchen sink and shower drains into a shallow grey water field in the backyard. They have 2 composting bucket toilets and they sprinkle sawdust into the buckets after each use to absorb moisture and prevent smells. For heat, they cut their own firewood for their Blaze King catalytic wood stove, and for their antique cookstove in the kitchen that they use for cooking and baking. Jeff and Rose homeschool their 5 girls for a few hours each day and also ensure that their kids are learning diverse life skills like growing their own food, caring for horses, raising bees, and more. We're very impressed with the clever solutions this family has come up with to make off-grid living seem so easy. If you want to learn more about this inspiring family and follow their journey, check out their Gridlessness project — they have a blog and a YouTube channel.

Jackson Beardy A Canadian Artist and Prominent Member of The Indian Group of Seven Authentic Hand Painted Canvas Art (Famous Masterpieces) Free Shipping and Free Returns.... http://www.FamousArtistsofHistory.com/FamousArtistPaintingsOnYourWall.php http://www.GodistheCreator.com Jackson Beardy (Garden Hill First Nation Reserve, Island Lake, Manitoba, Canada, July 24, 1944 - December 7, 1984, Winnipeg, Manitoba) was a Canadian artist. He was an Anishinini-Indian and his works are characterized by scenes from the holy stories of his people. He belonged to the Woodland School of Art and was a prominent member of the Indian Group of Seven. In 1972 Jackson Beardy, Alex Janvier and Daphne Odjig held a joint exhibition at the Winnipeg Art Gallery. It was called "Treaty Numbers 23, 287, 1171" a reference to the treaty numbers that the Canadian government gave to the indigenous groups which they had concluded treaties. From this exhibition grew a group of indigenous (Native) Canadian artists who named their selves the "Professional Native Indian Artists Association" in 1973. This is better known as the Indian Group of Seven, including alongside Jackson Beardy also Alex Janvier, Norval Morrisseau, Daphne Odjig, Carl Ray, Eddy Cobiness en Joseph Sanchez. This group combined forces to promote their work into the world of western art. They were committed to indigenous control of indigenous art and to change the way the world looked to this art. A shift from an emphasis on "indigenous" to "Artistic" value. Although Beardy's early work often narrates specific legends, his mature art expresses fundamental cosmological and spiritual concepts such as balance in nature, regeneration and growth, and the interdependence of all things. His distinctive graphic style is characterized by precisely defined flat areas of warm colour and curving ribbons of paint. Jackson Beardy died on December 7, 1984 in Winnipeg, Manitoba to complications after a heart attack.

Steve Martin the multi-talented and beloved comedian, actor, musician and writer has turned his hand to curating an exhibition of paintings from one of his favourite artists, Lawren Harris titled: "The Idea of North: The Paintings of Lawren Harris. Lawren Stewart Harris (1885–1970) was a Canadian painter who is best known as a member of the Group of Seven who pioneered a distinctly Canadian painting style in the early twentieth century. A. Y. Jackson has been quoted as saying that Harris provided the stimulus for the Group of Seven. During the 1920s, Harris' works became more abstract and simplified, especially his stark landscapes of the Canadian north and Arctic. The desolate, haunting paintings of nature in the raw have become iconic and loved images that have been stamped into the imagination of the Canadian consciousness.

September 11, 1919), is a Canadian First Nations artist of Odawa-Potawatomi-English heritage. Her many awards include the Order of Canada and the Governor General's Award. Her painting is often characterized as Woodlands Style. Daphne Odjig was the driving force behind the Indian Group of Seven. Odjig moved to Ottawa for a formal art education. She went on to continue her art education in Sweden. She fused together elements of aboriginal pictographs and First Nations arts with European techniques and styles of the 20th century. Her breakthrough into the art work happened in the 1960s when she received critical acclaim for her pen and ink drawings of Cree people from northern Manitoba. She explored erotic themes in some of her paintings which is rare in First Nations art work. In 1974, Odjig illustrated Tales from the Smokehouse, a collection of traditional First Nations erotica written by Herbert T. Schwarz. That same year, she opened the first Canadian gallery exclusively representing First Nations art in Winnipeg. In 1973, Odjig became a founding member of the Professional Native Indian Artists Association, along with Alex Janvier and Norval Morrisseau. Her work is included in such public collections as Canada Council's Art Bank, the National Museum of Man in Ottawa, the Tom Thompson Gallery, the McMichael Canadian Collection, the Sequoyah Research Center and the Government of Israel. She has been commissioned to create art by Expo '70 in Osaka, Japan, the Manitoba Museum of Man and Nature, and El Al, the Israeli airline. Odjig has traveled extensively and has exhibited in Canada, the United States, Belgium, and Japan. She has had over 30 solo exhibitions and been part of over 50 group exhibits during her career.

As a member of the commonly referred to "Indian Group of Seven", Janvier is a pioneer of contemporary Canadian aboriginal art in Canada. Alex Janvier received formal art training from the Alberta Institute of Technology and Art in Calgary (now the Alberta College of Art and Design) and graduated with honours in 1960. Immediately after graduation, Janvier took up an opportunity to instruct art at the University of Alberta. In 1966, the federal Department of Indian and Northern Affairs commissioned him to produce 80 paintings. He helped bring together a group of artists for the Indians of Canada Pavilion at Expo 67, among them Norval Morrisseau and Bill Reid. Janvier currently runs a gallery called Janvier Gallery in Cold Lake, AB with his family. Alex Janvier, the 'first Canadian native modernist,' has created a unique style of modernist abstraction, his own "visual language," informed by the rich cultural and spiritual traditions and heritage of the Dene in northern Alberta. His abstract style is particularly suited to large-scale works. At the river end of the Grand Hall of the Canadian Museum of Civilization is a dome rising seven stories above the granite floor. Nineteen metres (62 feet) in diameter, the dome is adorned with Alex Janvier's striking abstract painting Morning Star. With the assistance of his son Dean, Janvier began painting in June 1993 and finished in September the same year. Morning Star covers 418 square metres or 4,500 square feet.

Carl Ray A First Nations Artist and Founding Member of The Indian Group of Seven Authentic Hand Painted Canvas Art (Famous Masterpieces) Free Shipping and Free Returns.... http://www.FamousArtistsofHistory.com/FamousArtistPaintingsOnYourWall.php http://www.GodistheCreator.com Carl Ray (1943--1978) was a First Nations artist who was active on the Canadian art scene from 1969 until his death in 1978. Considered primarily a Woodlands Style artist, he also painted European style wildlife and landscapes. He was a founding member of the Indian Group of Seven. Self taught artist Carl Ray was born in 1943 on the Sandy Lake First Nation reserve in northern Ontario, Canada and was known in his Cree community as Tall Straight Poplar (he was 6'4" tall) where he hunted and trapped after leaving residential school at fifteen following the death of his father. At this traditional way of living he was a failure - in Carl's own words years later: "a year's catch consisted of four beaver, one lynx, and an assortment of mice and rabbits". Despite showing artistic promise at an early age, Carl was reluctant to break the taboo of painting the sacred beliefs and stories of his people. He did not touch a brush or paint for many years after having been admonished by his elders for doing so. Carl Ray is best known for his work executed in the style of the Woodlands School (often referred to as "legend painting" style). Lacking sophisticated technique, but resplendent with powerful imagery, his super-realistic images were unique, and his signature style is easily recognized. Describing his work, Carl stated "What you are looking at is ancient and sacred. In fact what you see could be described as a part of my soul". The spiritual and emotional commitment he put into his work was substantial - "his (work) came from a very deep journey, a lot of people are afraid to make that journey" Many of his works were limited to two or three colours, brown, black and blue, often mixing ink and watercolours. His lesser known, but equally powerful scenic western style canvases were also a large part of Carl's repertoire. Often ensconced in hues of electric blue, he captured the wildlife and beauty of the Sandy Lake area. He also combined the two styles on occasion, capturing his imaginative images of Cree legends in full electrifying colour. Carl was known by his peers as a man of general good humour. He was also known as somewhat of a jokester as described by fellow painter Alex Janvier: "Carl Ray was the guy who could laugh, make fun of you, throw a joke on you and he'd laugh his head off". Carl Ray was murdered, stabbed to death, as a result of a drunken brawl over money in Sioux Lookout in 1978. He was only 35 years old. In a note to Carl Ray by George Kenny after his death he wrote "I wonder if those paintings you painted ever satisfied your demons that drove you to paint...Didn't you realize that fame only comes at the meeting of one of those demons -- DEATH? ....Now we'll never know the extent of your greatness..."

Is This Art Canadian? James King on Bertram Brooker
 
15:20
Best known as one of Canada’s first painters to exhibit abstract work in Canada, Bertram Brooker (1888–1955) was an advertising executive, critic, and self-taught artist. Bertram Brooker: Life & Work traces the career of a remarkable visionary ahead of his time, illuminating how the talented polymath led a new era of the arts in Canada. After relocating to Toronto from Manitoba in 1921 to join the staff of Marketing magazine, Brooker became friends with members of the Group of Seven—in particular Lawren Harris, who shared his abiding interest in the spirituality of art. In 1927 Arthur Lismer sponsored a small exhibit of Brooker’s works—widely considered the first solo exhibition of non-objective paintings in Canada. In 1929 Brooker met Manitoban artist Lionel LeMoine FitzGerald whose influence was a catalyst for Brooker’s now iconic style of geometric, abstracted landscapes. Not without controversy, in 1931 Brooker submitted a painting that was later removed from a gallery show before its exhibition because it contained nudity. He wrote the essay “Nudes and Prudes” in rebuke. James King is a professor of English in the Department of English and Cultural Studies at McMaster University. He has been a John Simon Guggenheim Memorial fellow and is a member of the Royal Society of Canada. He has written biographies of, among others, Lawren Harris, David Milne, and Greg Curnoe. He is now preparing a biography of Michael Snow and is curating an exhibition of Snow’s early works for the Art Gallery of Hamilton.

Known as the "Picasso of the North", Morrisseau created works depicting the legends of his people, the cultural and political tensions between native Canadian and European traditions, his existential struggles, and his deep spirituality and mysticism. His style is characterized by thick black outlines and bright colors. He founded the Woodlands School of Canadian art and was a prominent member of the "Indian Group of Seven". His full name is Jean-Baptiste Norman Henry Morrisseau, but he signs his work using the Cree syllabics writing ᐅᓵᐚᐱᐦᑯᐱᓀᐦᓯ (Ozaawaabiko-binesi, unpointed: ᐅᓴᐘᐱᑯᐱᓀᓯ, "Copper/Brass [Thunder]Bird"), as his pen-name for his Anishnaabe name ᒥᐢᒁᐱᐦᐠ ᐊᓂᒥᐦᑮ (Miskwaabik Animikii, unpointed: ᒥᐢᑿᐱᐠ ᐊᓂᒥᑭ, "Copper Thunderbird"). Morrisseau was a self-taught artist. He developed his own techniques and artistic vocabulary which captured ancient legends and images that came to him in visions or dreams. He was originally criticized by the native community because his images disclosed traditional spiritual knowledge. Initially he painted on any material that he could find, especially birchbark, and also moose hide. Dewdney encouraged him to use earth-tone colors and traditional material, which he thought were appropriate to Morrisseau's native style. In 1978, he was made a Member of the Order of Canada. The National Arts Centre, urban ink co-production, Copper Thunderbird, premiered on the Aboriginal Peoples Television Network (APTN) on Monday, Feb 4th 2008. Norval Morrisseau was honoured with a posthumous Lifetime Achievement Award during the NAAF Awards held at the Sony Centre in Toronto on March 22, 2008.
