A. J. Casson
Alfred Joseph Casson was a member of the Group of Seven — likeminded Canadian landscape painters active in the early part of the 20th century.

Casson worked in watercolor, oil and printmaking, capturing in his landscapes both the nature of the land, and his own fascinating vision — in which the shapes of trees, rocks and other natural forms take on a muscular strength and a semi-abstracted geometric structure — sort of Thomas Hart Benton meets Cezanne.

Unfortunately, I’ve found limited resources for his work online, but I’ve listed what I could find below.

  1. Just beautiful. And I like the comparison you draw. The work definitely has that elasticity of Hart Benton, a favorite of mine.

    Does anyone know the geographical location of A.J. Casson’s ‘Little Island’?
