Arthur Lismer

Arthur Lismer (1885-1969)

Arthur Lismer - one of the founding members of the The Group of Seven, President of the Group from 1954 to 1955, and participant at the Group's first exhibition of 1920 is one of the most prolific and important Canadian artists of the first half of the twentieth-century. Born in England in 1885, Lismer attended the Sheffield School of Art from 1898 to 1905. After apprenticing with a photo-engraving company in Sheffield, he traveled to Antwerp in 1906 to study at the Académie royale des beaux arts. He came to Canada in 1911, settling in Toronto, working in the commercial art firm of Rapid Grip and Batten Company, along with fellow artists J.E.H. MacDonald, Franklin Carmichael and Tom Thomson.

Lismer's travels into the Ontario countryside to paint began with his first trip to Georgian Bay in 1913, and his first trip to Algonquin Park with Tom Thomson in 1914. Lismer returned many times to Georgian Bay, a landscape he had a passion for. He exhibited work from this area, most notably A September Gale, in the first Group of Seven exhibition in 1920.

Lismer had a long and respected career as an educator and received many honours later in life, such as the Order of Canada, the Greer Memorial Award, a Canada Council Medal and honourary degrees from Dahousie and McGill Universities.

Arthur Lismer paintings are part of museums and private collections all over the world.
