For over 40 years, Canadian Fine Arts has been a source of fine paintings from Canada’s important artists. With a particular focus on the Group of Seven and their Contemporaries, CFA continues to acquire and offer some of the best works available in the private realm.
Landscape artists in Canada, particularly the galvanizing Group of Seven, have sought to depict the immense breadth and scale of vista our country provides. The artists included in this exhibition plied their trade from the northern arctic region down to the border with the United States, and from the cliffs of Labrador to the shores of the Pacific, endlessly seeking to capture the moments of awe and beauty that were revealing themselves during their expeditions. Many works included were painted on location, with paints and paintbox in hand, hoping to crystallize the experience unfolding in front of them.
