Varley, Canada's greatest portrait artist and innovative member of our most famous collection of landscape painters, the Group of Seven. His best-known painting, 'Stormy Weather, Georgian Bay' has been a symbol of the Group of Seven. Varley's greatest achievement as an artist is in his ability to portray the essential oneness of man and nature, the relationship between the figure and the landscape. This book is a tribute to Frederick Varley's achievements as portraitist, war artist, and interpreter of nature." Minor wear at corners and at top/bottom of spine.
