Transcript of ELEMENTS & PRINCIPLES OF ... The Group of Seven had artists that were not technically members...

  • CANADIAN ART:

    The Late 1800’s

    Canadian artists working in the late 1800’s and early

    1900’s painted landscapes in a fairly realistic style.

    They painted what they saw without expressing any

    feeling or emotions. This style of painting landscapes

    with a soft, quiet, tame, and inviting appearance

    originated in Europe. These landscapes were full of

    realistic details and natural colours, but they lacked

    personal expression.

  • CANADIAN ART:

    THE GROUP OF SEVEN

    The Group of Seven was founded in 1920 to develop a

    new style of Canadian painting with a distinct Canadian

    identity. These artists painted what they saw, but

    added imagination and feeling. They were especially

    interested in expressing the wild, untamed spirit of the

    Canadian wilderness in their paintings.

    The artists often travelled into the wilderness to make

    sketches in the open air. They wanted to capture the

    atmosphere, the effects of light, and the spirituality and

    ruggedness of the northern Canadian landscape. In

    order to accomplish this, their style was also rugged,

    expressive, and powerful.
