Documentary on The Group of Seven

This documentary by Alapar Productions, records the history of the Group of Seven.
It also features Tom Thompson who was not a member of the group.The Group of Seven wasn't a fixed group in time. There were at various times as many as ten members.

Frank Johnson was the only member to leave.

Six Members of the Group of Seven are buried on the property of the McMichael Art Gallery in Kleinburg, Ontario.

Some interesting information. Emily Carr was not a group member. Ernest Wicksey was invited to join the group but declined because he wanted to spend the weekends with his family and attend church on Sundays.
