Pictures of War: The Art of George Broomfield

With the museum currently closed to the public, the staff have been coming up with various new and different ways for everyone to experience the museum from their homes, calling it the Museum from Home Initiative. Today the museum has added to that initiative.

George Broomfield was born in 1906 in Parkdale, Toronto, Ontario. At the age of 14, he was chosen by Arthur Lismer to attend the Ontario College of Art (1920-21). George studied under five members of the Group of Seven: Arthur Lismer, J.E.H. MacDonald, Franklin Carmichael, with assistance from Alexander Jackson and Frank Johnston.
