Arthur Lismer

       Arthur Lismer was born June 27, 1885 in Sheffield, UK. He settled in Toronto, Ontario and took a job with Grip – a commercial design company. The collaboration of four artists at Grip gradually evolved into the “Group of Seven”, a famous Canadian art movement known for its portrayals of North American wilderness. Another artist also associated with the group was Tom Thomson, although technically he died before the group formed. He also worked with the cadre at Grip.

Top Ten Paintings by Tom Thomson

Top Ten Paintings by Tom Thomson

       Tom Thomson was born August 5, 1877 near Claremont, Ontario and grew up in Leith, near Owen Sound. In 1899, he entered a machine shop apprenticeship at a foundry owned by William Kennedy, a close friend of his father. He was fired from his apprenticeship by a foreman who complained of Thomson’s habitual tardiness. In 1899 he volunteered to fight in the Second Boer War. In 1901, he enrolled in a business college in Chatham and dropped out eight months later to follow his older brother, George Thomson, who was operating a business school in Seattle, Washington. There he met and had a brief summer romance with Alice Elinor Lambert. In 1904, he returned to Canada, and may have studied with William Cruikshank. In 1907 Thomson joined Grip Ltd., an artistic design firm in Toronto, where many of the future members of the Group of Seven also worked.
