In the early 20th century, the Canadian artist Tom Thomson (1877"1917) set out to paint in the Ontario wilderness, basing himself in the Algonquin National Park.

His depictions of rugged scenery were to inspire the Group of Seven, a society that formed after his tragic and mysterious death.It is easy to see an affinity between the broad handling of paint favoured by Thomson and his followers and the work of European Post-Impressionists such as Van Gogh and Cézanne, although the landscapes the Canadians depicted are far more breezy and untamed.
