This is one of the most famous and iconic paintings in the history of Canadian art. It was one of the first times an artist had painted the rugged scenery of the Canadian north, and when it first appeared in public it was well received. This depiction of the rugged Canadian wilderness was to become the main theme and subject matter for the Group of Seven in the years to come. Here we see Tom Thomson experimenting with brush stroke techniques and subtle colour choices. This specific tree was said to have been painted on Lake Acray in Algonquin Park, and is said to have only fallen over a few years ago.
Fittingly so, this was the first mural made in the Group of Seven Outdoor Gallery.
