Puchased from The Huntsville BIA by Port Cunnington Lodge

This beautiful depiction of an interior forest waterfall is indicative of the extensive and rough travel through the bush that Tom Thomson often did to find remote locations in Algonquin Park. The beauty of this painting is found in the way Thomson composed it; the eye is always drawn back to the start of the waterfall, and led through the forest, then back to the waterfall.

Description

Tom Thomson (1877-1917) was born in Claremont Ontario, and his family later to moved to Lieth in the Owen Sound area where he grew up. He spent a lot of time outdoors fishing and exploring his natural surroundings and had a keen interest in nature, learning about the native plants and animals of the area. He spent his young adulthood learning and training in business and graphic design, some of which was spent in Seattle, Washington where his brother operated a school of business. He returned to Toronto and got work in a commercial design house and worked under J.E.H. MacDonald. His love of the outdoors never left him, and after being encouraged by his boss and coworkers to take up painting, he ventured into Algonquin Park in 1912 with his paints and wooden panels. This would prove to be the turning point in his artist expression and in the history of Canadian art.
