Group of Seven
Group of Seven, group of seven 20th-century Canadian painters known primarily for their colorful landscapes. The original members were Franklin Carmichael, Lawren Harris, Alexander Y. Jackson, Franz Johnston, Arthur Lismer, J.E.H. MacDonald, and Fred Varley. An eight member, Tom Thompson, died in 1917, 3 years before the group's first show. The group later grew to include new members and changed its name to the Canadian Group of Painters (1933).
