    Tom Thomson

    Born near Claremont, Ontario, Tom Thomson, the youngest of six children, grew up in Leith (near Owen Sound). At an early age, Thomson played both the violin and the mandolin. As an adult, he became an avid outdoorsman and expert canoeist, preferring to spend his time at Algonquin Park, working as a guide – until the onset of winter would force his return to the city. This lifestyle offered only minimal wages, yet it afforded Thomson the freedom to paint in the natural setting he so cherished.
