Paintings from Canada
Canadian art is similar to USA artworks in one thing: they both are formed under influence of First Nations Peoples culture who lived in North America for centuries, and European painting tradition which was brought to a continent with first and the following waves of colonization.
Interesting facts about Canadian fine art
A large debate is raised over Canadian artistic society about definition of Canadian art. Canada is a multicultural country with open immigration program so thousands of people from different country come here every year and bring their culture which of course makes an impact on local art. In Canada lives a largest Ukrainian diaspora in the world, and immigrants from Ukraine actively develop their art which influences Canadian art as well.
Country government is actively involved in developing the art. It establishes and organizes funding for various art schools, initiates scientific publications about art, organizes and supports different art events and exhibitions.
One of the first and the most known uniquely Canadian artists are thought to be the Group of Seven — seven landscape painters who worked together between 1920–1933. The most known representatives of this group are Emily Carr and Tom Thomson who created two the most recognizable paintings of the group — The Jack Pine and The West Wind.
Main subjects of contemporary Canadian art
Many examples of Canadian painting depict a severe but breathtaking local nature. Mountains covered by snow or city streets in winter are the most popular images that are often depicted on different paintings and in different styles.
