Format: Paperback
Wayne Larsen delivers a superficial telling of Canada's greatest landscape painter, who drowned in Canoe Lake, Algonquin Park, in 1917. Offered as a full biography, Larsen commits the sin of fictionalizing the most important scenes in Thomson's life -- his romance with Alice Lambert in Seattle, his engagement to Anne E. Trainor, his drowning and his funeral in Owen Sound. the book makes no effort to understand Thomson's most famous paintings or his tremendous output in the months before his death.

Ignore the first review. Larsen's book is an excellent read filled with more insight into the actual ART and PAINTINGS than many of the previous books on Thomson that I have read. It's an excellent entry in this series on great Canadians.

Format: Paperback
This biography of one of Canada's most renowned artists is enjoyable, engaging, and informative. The life of Thomson is well presented and includes his family background and youth, his associations with other artists (some of whom later became" 'The Group of Seven"'), and his canoeing and fishing adventures, which were the backdrop for his now famous landscape canvases in Algonquin Park. As well, aspects of Thomson''s mysterious and tragic death are described. Larsen fluidly conveys the evolution of Thomson's career, and portrays the passion of Thomson as an artist within his element, the Northern wilderness.
