Tom Thomson was largely self taught and did not seriously pursue becoming a painter until he was in his thirties. In a few short years as a painter, Tom Thomson became the master at capturing the true spirit of the Canadian wilderness as he recorded his impressions of the changing patterns of light, color, and the seasons in Algonquin Park. He would not live to see the formation of the Group of Seven in 1920. Yet, despite his untimely death in 1917 at the age of 40, Thomson’s name became synonymous with the Group, who strove to portray the Canadian landscape in a painting style distinct from European tradition. With Study of Northern River, Thomson shows his ability to transform a sketch into a succesful studio painting.
