Description : Tom Thomson, whose grandiose landscapes of Ontario's wilderness marked the entry of Canadian art into the modern era, died at a young age under troubling circumstances. His career as a painter was as brief as it was fundamental, in that it inspired the next great generation of Canadian painters, the iconic Group of Seven. Returning to the circumstances of the painter's sudden disappearance just as he was beginning to attain recognition, Sandrine Revel retraces his journey, sketching a subtle portrait of the artist while questioning nostalgia in art as it attaches itself to artists. This is a book about memory and the past: troubling, beautiful, and melancholic, like the passage of time.

Description : This is an intimate biography of an artist who became a legend after his death, but who in his private life stands revealed as a troubled man who was, in many ways, his own victim. Joan Murray’s new biography is part detective work, too: she investigates his beliefs, and the origins of his great masterpieces, and provides a convincing description of the possible circumstances of his death. The art of Tom Thomson represents one of the high points of Canadian modernism, which flourished in the first two decades of this century. During his brief career, lasting just five years, Thomson evolved a highly intense, naturalistic style, introducing formal innovations and challenging the idiom of the tonal landscape of painters popular in his day. Thomson’s idiosyncratic expressionist landscape art reflected the intellectual and psychological climate of pre-World War I Canada. It developed against the complex cultural background that produced the poets Bliss Carmen and Duncan Campbell Scott and, later, the painters of the Group of Seven. Despite his short creative life, and only half a decade of mature artistic activity, Thomson, a superb designer, produced an extensive body of work - more than thirty canvases and three hundred oil sketches - in a remarkably personal style, characterized by unusual colour combinations and strong patterns. Through it he conveyed the existential dimension of nature, making Algonquin Park - its trees, waters, and winds - the principal subject of his work.

Description : Tom Thomson's most influential paintings as chosen by his friends and collectors, illustrating a moving, untold story in Canadian art. In spring 1918, Lawren Harris and J.E.H. MacDonald, two members of the soon-to-be-formed Group of Seven, met in the Studio Building in Toronto. Their friend Tom Thomson had died the year before, and they determined to establish him as one of Canada's great artists. Most of his paintings and sketches were stacked up in the studio. They would select the best, mark their comments on the back of these works and make sure they got into Canada's most prestigious public and private collections. These two great artists had been Thomson's mentors and friends, teaching him about current art movements and coaching him in painting techniques. The pupil would become the master -- and Harris and MacDonald, together with A.Y. Jackson, wanted to be sure that he would be recognized and remembered. Art historian Joan Murray has constructed a beautiful, intimate treasury of Thomson's "best paintings," as chosen by these artist friends and later major collectors, and has written an insightful commentary on each one. Knowing the story that lies behind Thomson's great works helps us to view these paintings with new insight and appreciation. We understand what makes these works special.

Description : Canadian Art in the Twentieth Century is a survey of the richest, most controversial and perhaps most thoroughly confusing centuries in the whole history of the visual arts in Canada - the period from 1900 to the present. Murray shows how, beginning with Tonalism at the start of the century, new directions in art emerged - starting with our early Modernists, among them Tom Thomson and the Group of Seven. Today, Modernism has lost its dominance. Artists, critics, and the public alike are confronted by a scene of unprecedented variety and complexity. Murray discusses the social and political events of the century in combination with the cultural context; movements, ideas, attitudes, and styles; the important groups in Canadian art, and major and minor artists and their works. Fully documented, well researched and written with clarity and over four hundred illustrations in both black-and-white and colour, Murray's book is essential for understanding Canadian art of this century. As an introduction, it is excellent in both its scope and intelligence.

Description : Neil J. Lehtos Algonquin Elegy: Tom Thomsons Last Spring, is both a labor of love and a labor of gargantuan effort to come to some understanding, nine decades on, of exactly what happened that summer of 1917. Perhaps no one has ever worked as hard to know the unknowable and, in doing so, he has contributed invaluably to the greatest story in all of Canadian art. Neils passion for Tom Thomson shines through as passionately on each page as Thomsons passion for Algonquin Park shines though on each painting he left behind that last Spring.

Description : Since his drowning in 1917, Tom Thomson has been recreated by poets, playwrights, novelists, filmmakers, biographers, and other artists as a legendary figure synonymous with Canada and its northern identity. Touted as a great artist cut off in his prime, his mysterious death in Canoe Lake, Algonquin Park, and the controversy about his final resting-place fired the popular imagination and raised him to the status of a national hero. In "Inventing Tom Thomson" Sherrill Grace examines many of the ways in which the figure of Thomson has been imagined by Canadians. Even people who do not know his paintings well will recognize "The Jack Pine" and know his legend through the marketing of Thomson memorabilia on the Web, in museums, and in stores. Grace suggests that the figure we have come to recognize as Tom Thomson is inextricably associated with many of the qualities that we believe characterize Canadian culture - love of the wilderness, northern purity, solitary independence, and a masculine ability to canoe, camp, fish, and rough it in the bush. "Inventing Tom Thomson" is about those artists who have felt compelled to imagine their own Tom Thomsons and about what the man has come to represent to the culture at large - it is about us and how the stories about this exceptional painter have shaped our sense of who we are as a nation.

Description : A stunning new edition of the Canadian classic with never-before-seen paintings First published in 1977 to commemorate the centenary of the birth of a Canadian painter whose brief, brilliant life, and untimely death in a mysterious canoe accident, gained him mythic status in his homeland, Tom Thomson: The Silence and the Storm quickly attained legendary status in its own right. This newly designed and expanded edition revives a classic and adds more than 25 never-before-seen paintings and a new introduction. Co-authors Harold Town, a founder of the Painters Eleven and an icon of Canadian art himself, and art historian David P. Silcox, former head of Sotheby's Canadian division, celebrate this early associate of the Group of Seven as a key creative figure without falling into the trap of cultural jingoism. Thomson, the authors maintain, was an inspired regional painter—in the best sense of that term—who stumbled upon the bold Expressionist palette pioneered by Matisse and his contemporaries despite working from a provincial backwater. Thomson's finest works are reproduced here in painstakingly colour-matched plates, including more than 80 of Thomson's famous oil sketches in exactly their original size.

Description : Slant Room marks the book-length emergence of a poet whose work, already startlingly assured, is gaining national recognition. The poetry of Michael Eden Reynolds transforms both the Yukon's terrain and such everyday objects as a refrigerator through the use of arresting imagery and spare, dense language, finding a musical equivalence that is rare in contemporary Canadian poetry. `... I knock/ a cup of sugar cubes, it spits across/ the tabletop: metric archipelago.' The book's four sections include the spacious landscapes of `Spare Room', an elegiac dream-suite, `Migrations', and the strange mindscapes from the title section. The finale, `Fugue', shows the poet expanding his repertoire in a suite of interpenetrating sonnets that wormhole from the past through a catastrophic future. Reynolds' voice, reminiscent by turns of the imagery of John Thompson and the musicality of W. S. Graham, is nonetheless distinctive, and finally original. This book is: `... a room that makes you:/ the way that rock was split, awed,/ mouth filled with rare plants and meltwater.'
