Byng Inlet, Georgian Bay, 1914–1915, by Tom Thomson (Canadian, 1877–1917)
Oil on canvas, 71.5 x 76.3 cm (281⁄8 x 301⁄16 in.)
Tom Thomson, an avid outdoorsman and backcountry guide, had a brief but brilliant art career profoundly influenced by the Canadian landscape. Thomson loved exploring Ontario’s north country, recording his impressions of the wilderness in small oil sketches full of vivid color and bold brushwork. 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.
