Franklin Carmichael (1890-1945) was a founding member of the Group of Seven and a driving force in the development of watercolour painting in Canada in the 20th Century. This talent and passion for watercolour technique as well as the landscape of Canada was shared by his younger colleague and later member of the Group of Seven, AJ Casson (1898-1992). In this course we will consider the life and works of both these artists and the context for the choices and development of their careers.
The course is designed to include as many examples of Carmichael and Casson paintings as possible for the turn of the 20th century until 1964. A.J. Casson and Franklin Carmichael are renowned as dedicated and visionary artists and printmakers, particularly in Ontario. They were both highly influential in the development of Canadian art and artists.
