Franklin Carmichael Art Prints

Franklin Carmichael, (4 May 1890 – 24 October 1945) was a Canadian artist from Ontario and the youngest original member of the “Group of Seven.” Carmichael arrived at Toronto when he was 20 years old and entered the Ontario College of Art in Toronto, where he studied with William Cruickshank and George Reid. In 1911, he began working as an apprentice at Grip Ltd. for $2.50 a week. He then joined Tom Thomson and other painters who were training to be serious artists. On weekends, Carmichael went on sketching trips with the other artists. In 1913, Carmichael went to Belgium to study painting but came back to Ontario to rejoin with the rest of the artists. After returning, he painted watercolours and oils of Northern Ontario landscapes. Carmichael was greatly influenced by Tom Thomson and shared space with him at a studio building in 1914. He was also on the fringe of the group because of his difference in age and was closely associated with the newer members of the Group of Seven. Carmichael along with A. J. Casson and F. H. Brigden founded the “Ontario Society of Painters” in Watercolour in 1925. He also founded the “Canadian Group of Painters” in 1933. He taught at the Ontario College of Art from 1932 to 1945. Many of his paintings are about small towns in Ontario. He was famous for his watercolour paintings and was influenced by other “Group of Seven” artists.
