Artwork Description

Franz Johnston born in Toronto in 1888, was a Canadian artist associated with the Group of Seven. As a commercial artist at Grip Ltd., he was involved with the circle of young artists working there, whose ideas about Canadian art led to the formation of The Group. When he joined the firm around 1908, his fellow Grip workers included J. E. H. Macdonald and Tom Thomson, and later Arthur Lismer and Franklin Carmichael signed on.
