Tom Thomson, an avid outdoorsman and backcountry guide, had a brief but brilliant art career profoundly influenced by the Canadian landscape. Thomson loved exploring Ontario's north country, recording his impressions of the wilderness in small oil sketches full of vivid color and bold brushwork. The painting reproduced for this 500-piece puzzle is a stunning depiction of the water, land, trees, and sky of Byng Inlet. But it also captures a moment when we can practically feel and hear the wind.

Tom Thomson (Canadian, 1877–1917) loved the rough country of northern Ontario. An avid outdoorsman and backcountry guide, he had a brief but brilliant art career profoundly influenced by the Canadian landscape. After a slow beginning as an artist, he found his stride and created hundreds of sketches recording his impressions of the wilderness in small oils remarkable for their vivid color and bold brushwork. Many of Thomson’s paintings were executed in only a few hours but are nonetheless emblematic of Canadian art. Thomson would not live to see the birth of the Group of Seven, yet despite his untimely death in 1917, his name became synonymous with the Group, and together their works have come to symbolize a distinctly Canadian identity.
