76 page exhibition catalogue. "Although paintings by members of the Group of Seven have been included in all major exhibitions of Canadian painting, there has been only one important exhibition devoted exclusively to their work since 1933, when the Group of Seven was merged into the larger Canadian Group of Painters: this was held at the National Gallery of Canada in 1936. The present exhibition, then, may be regarded as the second such survey. It differs from the first by the addition of works by Franz Johnston, who was a member of the Group for a short time, and Tom Thomson, who was never a member, but who has been included in this exhibition on grounds of style and association. This is certainly the first time that any major collection of the work of the Group of Seven has been seen in Vancouver." - From Introduction by J.A. Morris, Curator. Includes article by Lawren Harris entitled "The Story of the Group of Seven" and an article by R.H. Hubbard entitled "The National Movement in Canadian Painting. Catalogue proper begins on page 19 and includes reproductions of many works, many of which are in colour. Quite moderate wear. Some yellowing and light soiling to glossy white covers and page edges. Small beige rectangular sticker-caused discolouration to lower corner of back cover. Approximate measurements: 9 inches high by 6 inches wide.
