The summer cabin of artist Tom Thomson has been relocated to the McMichael Gallery in Kleinburg where one can see several of his paintings along with those of his contemporaries in The Group of Seven . Although he was a great influence on the Group of Seven painters, he died mysteriously at Canoe Lake in Algonquin Park in Northern Ontario in 1917 before the group was officially formed.

  2. I’m glad people are working to preserve his important legacy to Canadian art. It is such a mysterious and sad ending for the talented man. Tom Thomson’s paintings are as intriguing as his early death. It’s the stuff movies are made of.

  3. Lovely black and white shot!
