The story of the Group of Seven Artists began in the early 1900s when several Canadian Artists began noticing a similarity in style. Around 1912 a loosely knit group of artists began to paint Canada as they saw it. Sketch boxes in tow, they journeyed all over the country to paint the wilderness with bold colors and a broad, decorative style. Their vision shaped how Canadians saw their own country and left a legacy that continues to provoke debate and discussion.
