Arthur Lismer (1885-1969)
Arthur Lismer emigrated from Sheffield, England to Toronto, Ontario, in 1911.
Soon after, through his employment at Grip Ltd., he would meet Tom Thomson and some of
the other artists that would one day comprise the Group.
In the years leading up to 1920, Lismer often joined these artists on sketching trips to
Algonquin Park and Georgian Bay, Ontario.
Lismer was always full of energy and possessed a barbed wit. With pencil and paper always
at hand, he delighted in creating clever cartoon drawings of his artist friends – and those
perceived to be enemies of their art. Nothing pleased him more than targeting the
establishment and all things pretentious.
A Teaching Legacy
With a strong commitment to teaching, Lismer established one of the most successful
children's art programs in North America.
In 1936, he set up school programs in South Africa.
An active promoter of the Group of Seven and the author of many articles on Canadian art,
Lismer continued to paint throughout his lifetime.
Lismer is buried in the small cemetery on the McMichael gallery grounds.
