In his free time, Thomson, an avid outdoorsman, loved to venture into northern Ontario’s rugged wilderness on painting expeditions. His boldly coloured and textured landscapes soon found a following, and in 1915, Dr. J. M. MacCallum commissioned Thomson to paint a series of decorative panels for his cottage on Georgian Bay. Thomson painted seven such panels, four of which are presented in this boxed notecard assortment. The panels are numbered I through IV and date from 1915 to 1916.
