Franklin Carmichael | The Group of Seven


From Orillia ON

Franklin Carmichael was a Canadian artist, the youngest original member of the Group of Seven.

Franklin Carmichael was born to Scottish-Canadian parents in Orillia. He grew up here until his 20th birthday. Then his love of art led him into the Ontario College of Art, Toronto. Despite being the youngest in the group, Franklin was president of The Group of Seven from 1932 to 1934.
In 1925 Franklin founded the Ontario Society for Painters in Watercolour, along with two other painters: A.J. Casson and F. H. Brigden. Then in 1933, he joined the Canadian Group of Painters.

“We have everything out of which to build ideas and traditions, to fail to make use of them would simply be throwing away a priceless heritage of spirit and material.”
