Tom Thompson at Huntsville, Ontario

One of the very best of Canadian artists, Tom Thompson, 1887-1917, rose just ahead of the Group of Seven. He led many Canadian artists right into Impressionism using scenes of the wilderness north of Ottawa and Toronto Ontario as his subject matter.

Here he is painting The West Wind. The statue is in front of the Civic Centre in Huntsville, Ontario.

  1. It's a marvelous sculpture. Gone before his time- he was such a great talent.
