CANADA FOR AMAZING ART




Canada’s lush forests and majestic mountains have long inspired artists. Many Canadian-born artists went to study abroad and returned to their home country to explore the wilderness armed with a paintbrush, using new styles to capture the unique beauty of its native people and terrain.

Maurice Cullen

 Maurice Cullen (1866–1934) left Montreal to study art in Paris. His discovery there of the work of the Impressionists had a profound influence on his style, which can be seen in landscapes such as A Misty Afternoon, St. John’s, Newfoundland (1910). He was a prominent member of the Canadian Art Club, a collective that encouraged the growth of national art

Tom Thomson

 Avid outdoorsman Tom Thomson (1877–1917) was an esteemed 20th-century Canadian painter. He was the first artist to attempt to express a sense of national identity with his distinctive, brightly colored landscapes of Northern Ontario, and he greatly influenced the country’s most celebrated group of painters, the Group of Seven.

THE GROUP OF SEVEN

From 1920 to 1931, the Group of Seven founded a distinctive Canadian art movement based on a love of their country’s natural beauty. These artists, among them J.E.H. MacDonald, Lawren Harris, A.Y. Jackson and Frank Johnston, used luminous colors and visible brushstrokes to depict their favorite places in Nova Scotia, Ontario, and Quebec wildernesses. The Art Gallery of Ontario in Toronto  has a permanent and extensive display of their paintings.

Emily Carr

Born in Victoria, Emily Carr (1871–1945) was Canada’s first prominent female artist and is still considered one of its greatest painters. Her early works depicted the west coast Salish people and their totem poles. She went on to produce many remarkable landscapes featuring Canada’s verdant forests.

A Taste of France

French-Canadian cuisine is ubiquitous throughout the country and, though Frenchinfluenced, it has often developed into something entirely unique. Hearty meat pies are a specialty, including cipaille (sea-pie), which has layers of game meat or fish beneath a flaky crust, and tourtière, which has a filling made of ground beef spiced with cloves. La Binerie MontRoyal (367 Mont-Royal Ave E) in Montreal serves tourtière by the slice. For traditional French favourites, head to Le Sélect Bistro (432 Wellington St W) in downtown Toronto for an authentic cassoulet or some exceptionally tasty bouillabaisse.
