Canadian Masterpiece Series: Arthur Lismer (1885 -1969)


Course description

Arthur Lismer is best known for his role as a founding member and a driving force of the Group of Seven. We will consider his student years in Europe, his commercial work, his commitment to Canada, the arts in particular, and his unique vision of the landscape of Canada. Often in company of friends Tom Thomson, Frederick Varley, Lawren Harris and A.Y. Jackson, Lismer created sketches and paintings across the country from Halifax to Long Beach on Vancouver Island. In this course, we will focus on Arthur Lismer’s work in diverse areas of the country, particularly those of Algonquin Park, Georgian Bay and Algoma regions of Ontario. The course is designed to include as many examples of his paintings as possible from the turn of the 20th century until 1964. In addition to his painting, Lismer is renowned as a dedicated and visionary art educator—particularly in Nova Scotia, Ontario and Quebec—who was highly influential in the development of Canadian art and artists.
