Group of 7 The Group of 7 were a group of painters from 1920 to 1933. They painted Canadian landscapes. The original members were Franklin Carmichael, Lawren Harris, A.Y Jackson, Frank Johnston, Arthur Lismer, J.E.H Macdonald, and Frederick Varley. Other people that had an influence on the Group of 7 that weren't actually members were Emily Carr and Tom Thompson. Why the Group of 7 formed was because they wanted to make Canadian art famous.
