The Group of 7 are our most famous Artists. They were a group of Canadian landscape painters from 1920 to 1933. The Group originally consisted of Lawren Harris, Franklin Carmicheal, A.Y. Jackson, Arthur Lismer, Frank Johnston, Frederick Varley, and J.E.H. MacDonald. Often very closely associated with the group was Tom Thomson, the single greatest influence upon them and is often considered the de facto leader of the group. Thomson had died in Algonquin Park over a year before the groups initial formation however.
The Group believed in a distinct Canadian Art that could be developed through direct contact with nature, and they influenced the first major Canadian Artistic Mmovement in our history.
Now, unbelievably, these important historic figures have come back to life!
Only, they've now come back as horrifying Zombies
