<p> For decades, the paintings of the Group of Seven have been instantly familiar to Canadians. But in the early part of the 20th century, these artists were engaged in a struggle for acceptance, mocked by critics and the public alike. <p> Who were the Group of Seven? In <b>The Group of Seven and Tom Thomson</b> author Anne Newlands explores the ambitions and visions of this unique cast of characters, capturing the cultural and historical realities of their time and bringing to life their artistic response to the Canadian wilderness. Writing with insight and enthusiasm, Newlands offers us an informative introduction to the lives and work of the artists who have come to symbolize the Canadian spirit. </p>
