Tom Thomson was Canada's Vincent van Gogh. He painted for a period of five years before meeting his untimely death in a remote wilderness lake in July 1917. He was buried in an unofficial grave close to the lake where his body was found. About eight hours after he was buried, the coroner arrived but never examined the body and ruled his death accidental due to drowning. A day and a half later, Thomson's family hired an undertaker to exhume the body and move it to the family plot about 100 miles away. This undertaker refused all help, and only worked at night. In 1956, John Little's father and three other men, influenced by the story of an old park ranger who never believed Thomson's body was moved by the undertaker, dug up what was supposed to be the original, empty grave. To their surprise, the grave still contained a body, and the skull revealed a head wound that matched the same location noted by the men who pulled his corpse from the water in 1917. The finding sent shockwaves across the nation and began a mystery that continues to this day. In Who Killed Tom Thomson? John Little continues the sixty-year relationship his family has had with Tom Thomson and his fate by teaming up with two high-ranking Ontario provincial police homicide detectives. For the first time, they provide a forensic scientific opinion as to how Thomson met his death, and where his body is buried. Little draws upon his father's research, plus recently released archival material, as well as his own thirty-year investigation. He and his colleagues prove that Thomson was murdered, and set forth two persons of interest who may have killed Tom Thomson.

Tom Thomson (1877-1917) occupies a prominent position in Canada’s national culture and has become a celebrated icon for his magnificent landscapes as well as for his brief life and mysterious death. The shy, enigmatic artist and woodsman’s innovative painting style produced such seminal Canadian images as The Jack Pine and The West Wind, while his untimely drowning nearly a century ago is still a popular subject of fierce debate. Originally a commercial artist, Thomson fell in love with the forests and lakes of Ontario’s Algonquin Park and devoted himself to rendering the north country’s changing seasons in a series of colourful sketches and canvases. Dividing his time between his beloved wilderness and a shack behind the Studio Building near downtown Toronto, Thomson was a major inspiration to his painter friends who, not long after his death, went on to change the course of Canadian art as the influential - and equally controversial - Group of Seven.

A stunning new edition of the Canadian classic with never-before-seen paintings First published in 1977 to commemorate the centenary of the birth of a Canadian painter whose brief, brilliant life, and untimely death in a mysterious canoe accident, gained him mythic status in his homeland, Tom Thomson: The Silence and the Storm quickly attained legendary status in its own right. This newly designed and expanded edition revives a classic and adds more than 25 never-before-seen paintings and a new introduction. Co-authors Harold Town, a founder of the Painters Eleven and an icon of Canadian art himself, and art historian David P. Silcox, former head of Sotheby's Canadian division, celebrate this early associate of the Group of Seven as a key creative figure without falling into the trap of cultural jingoism. Thomson, the authors maintain, was an inspired regional painter—in the best sense of that term—who stumbled upon the bold Expressionist palette pioneered by Matisse and his contemporaries despite working from a provincial backwater. Thomson's finest works are reproduced here in painstakingly colour-matched plates, including more than 80 of Thomson's famous oil sketches in exactly their original size.

Tom Thomson developed an artistic language that captured the unique qualities of the Canadian landscape - dazzling in color and in tune with the subtle changing of the seasons. After his untimely death, Thomson's friends organized a memorial exhibition, and followed this up by forming probably the most famous artistic force in Canadian art history: the Group of Seven. Lawren Harris, J.E.H. MacDonald, Arthur Lismer, Frederick Varley, Frank Johnston, Franklin Carmichael, and A.Y. Jackson created - along with Thomson - a landscape style that to this day influences the way Canadians visualize their own country. Highly revered in Canada, these great artists are virtually unknown outside. This spectacularly illustrated book, arranged according to the geographical areas depicted, with scholarly essays investigating different aspects of the painters' craft, aims to redress that imbalance.

Canadian Art in the Twentieth Century is a survey of the richest, most controversial and perhaps most thoroughly confusing centuries in the whole history of the visual arts in Canada - the period from 1900 to the present. Murray shows how, beginning with Tonalism at the start of the century, new directions in art emerged - starting with our early Modernists, among them Tom Thomson and the Group of Seven. Today, Modernism has lost its dominance. Artists, critics, and the public alike are confronted by a scene of unprecedented variety and complexity. Murray discusses the social and political events of the century in combination with the cultural context; movements, ideas, attitudes, and styles; the important groups in Canadian art, and major and minor artists and their works. Fully documented, well researched and written with clarity and over four hundred illustrations in both black-and-white and colour, Murray's book is essential for understanding Canadian art of this century. As an introduction, it is excellent in both its scope and intelligence.

In 1956, nearly forty years after the death of Canadian artist Tom Thomson, William T. Little and three male companions set themselves to a macabre task. Ever since July 16, 1917, when the artist's badly decomposed body had been found floating in the warm waters of Canoe Lake, controversy and conjecture were to hover, spectre-like, over the matter of how Tom Thomson really met his death. It was as a result of this prolonged controversy that the four men began digging in the little cemetery on the northwest shore of Canoe Lake, Algonquin Park, where Thomson had been buried following discovery of his body. These men were determined to solve, if only for themselves, part of the enigma that surrounded the name of Tom Thomson. What they discovered only confirmed that a true mystery did exist; that the full story of Thomson's untimely death is not in fact as history records it.That is to say, there should not have been any "discovery." Their diggings should not have uncovered a male skeleton, the skull of which bore a suspicious fracture on one temple. For Tom Thomson's body, according to all official reports, had been exhumed from its original grave site in the Park for burial in the family plot at Leith, Ontario. Was it really there? Then whose skeleton had been dug up at Canoe Lake? Official inquiry into the situation only seemed to further complicate an already baffling case.The lack of any sound and conclusive evidence resulting from this investigation set a frustrated William Little into action. Meticulously he pieced together everything that was ever written, documented, speculated an theorized about Tom Thomson during the artist's lengthy periods in Algonquin Park - with special emphasis on those strange events which occurred prior to, and after, his alleged "accidental death by drowning."This book is the result of Little's painstaking research. On the one hand he has been able to give us, through his many conversations with those who knew the artist, a fuller understanding of both Thomson's personality and his fine, bold instincts as a painter of our rugged northlands. On the other he has amassed considerable evidence that suggest Tom Thomson was murdered, and in this context builds up a case against the suspect and his motive. But above all else, he appeals to our respect for Thomson's contribution to the world of Canadian art, to see that the ugly and unsettling mystery of his death at long last be cleared.

City and country are reconciled in this series of short prose pieces encompassing Toronto’s vast urban sprawl and British Columbia’s Interior. On a visit to Canada’s largest metropolis, the author is drawn north to Kleinburg, site of Group of Seven artist Tom Thomson’s studio. There, he finds himself immersed in the crucible of "Canada", the cultural construct he recognizes from elementary–school textbooks. And suddenly, it all falls into place: rural, suburban, and urban coalesce in Rhenisch’s spare, acutely perceptive words. Rhenisch brilliantly distills the uneasy but indelible connection between th electronic grid that is Toronto and the valley south of his Cariboo home that is — according to Buddhist monks — the Centre of the Universe. Encounters with beekeepers, backwoods ranchers, university students, book publishers, home–brewers, cowboys, horse logger poets, fly fishermen, flora, fauna, and the land itself drive this thought–provoking deconstruction of the urban–rural divide.
