THE GROUP OF SEVEN: ART FOR A NATION. Charles C. Hill. National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa, 1995. Published in association with McClelland & Stewart Inc., Toronto. 376 pp. with 274 ills. (102 col.). 32 x 24 cm. LC 96-141625 ISBN 077106716X In English.
Presenting a thorough reappraisal of the renowned Toronto-based Group of Seven and its pivotal role in the formation of a distinctively Canadian style of modernism, this catalogue features excellent reproductions and concise individual discussions of some 180 paintings produced primarily in the 1920s by J.E.H. MacDonald, Lawren S. Harris, A.Y. Jackson, Arthur Lismer, F.H. Varley, F.H. Johnston, Franklin Carmichael and some 35 other artists associated with the movement (among them Emily Carr and Lionel LeMoine Fitzgerald), the selection consisting largely of vibrantly expressive landscapes composed of simplified, rhythmic forms. An extensive sixteen-part text traces the origins and development of the Group and examines the collective goals and individual achievements of the artists in the context of early 20th-century Canadian culture, providing detailed accounts of the Group's exhibiting activities throughout North America and Europe from 1920 to 1931 and thoroughly documenting the highly ambivalent reception of their work by Canadian critics of the period.
