About the Work
Lionel LeMoine FitzGerald (1890-1956) was an accomplished draftsman, painter, printmaker and art educator. His subjects arose from his detailed observations of nature in Western Canada including Winnipeg and Manitoba, where he worked throughout his life. In 1913, he exhibited with the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts, and held his first solo exhibition at the Winnipeg Art Gallery in 1921. Following an exhibition of his work in Toronto in 1928, FitzGerald was invited to exhibit with the Group of Seven. He became a member in 1932, just before the Group's expansion into the Canadian Group of Painters, of which FitzGerald was a charter member.
