Canadian artist Tom Thomson (1877-1917) may have lived a short life, dying prematurely in an accident before he was 40, but he left a legacy of brilliant panels and canvases of the dramatic landscape of central Ontario.  His style was distinguished by expressive brushstrokes and penetrating colors, particularly in the two works highlighted here created during the autumn season.
