Canadian painter Franklin Carmichael was the youngest of the “Group of Seven,” a group of artists brought together by their ability to tame the Canadian wilderness through their artwork. Born in Orillia, Ontario in 1890, Carmichael spent time training as an artist in Belgium, but was brought back to his native county during World War I. Like his fellow “Group of Seven” members, Carmichael was known for his oil and watercolor images of the Canadian landscape.
