Franklin Carmichael. Lake Superior landscape. Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto. [Source: torontohispano.com]
I’ve spent hours gazing at this Lake Superior landscape in the old Group of Seven gallery at the Art Gallery of Ontario. With AGO’s recent Frank Gerry makeover, that cozy wood-paneled room is no more. What a shame. Where is this Canadian masterpiece now? I looked for documentation on the AGO website (which gets a D minus for usability in my grade book) but found nothing. I’m not even sure anymore about the painting’s name. I know there are knowledgeable Group of Seven fans out there — please set me straight.
