Modern Spirits: The European Adventures of the Group of Seven

December 9, 2009

The secrets and symbolism of Canada’s most famous art group come to light in a lecture by bestselling author Ross King. King’s forthcoming book Modern Spirits: The European Adventures of the Group of Seven exposes how, despite their professed nationalism, the Group of Seven was clearly indebted to a number of international trends. A.Y. Jackson and Lawren Harris, for instance, studied and travelled extensively in Germany and France, while F.H. Varley worked for the Canadian War Memorials Fund in London. Speaking in person, Ross King will reveal the effects that these European experiences had on the Group’s iconic, much-loved artworks.
