Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Tom Thomson is Canada's most famous artist and as everyone knows, his short and glorious career was abruptly and brutally ended on July 8, 1917 under mysterious circumstances. Since the recovery of Thomson's body, theories as to the cause of his death -- accident? murder? -- have preoccupied sleuths for close to 100 years. This book weaves together Thomson's life, art and posthumous mythological presence. The narrative is illustrated with period photos of Thomson and other Group of Seven painters, plus 20 of his most compelling paintings.
