Twelve Farm Drawings: 1927-1932

Carl Schaefer

'RETURNING TO THE HANOVER AREA in the twenties and during the Great Depression, I rediscovered my own heritage, renewed an early upbringing and tramped the farmlands all so familiar. These drawings represent a reflection of those bygone days, my attachment to the land and life of the time.'

—Carl Schaefer


Carl Schaefer



Carl Schaefer was a distinguished Canadian painter and graphic artist. He studied first under members of the Group of Seven and exhibited with them, and he was a founding member of the Canadian Group of Painters, which succeeded the Group of Seven after its dissolution. He exhibited widely in Canada, the United States, Great Britain and Europe, receiving a long list of honours.

He is probably best known for his paintings, in water colour and oil, of the country around Hanover, Ontario, where he was born and grew up, his water colours of Waterloo County and the Haliburton Highlands, and paintings and drawings of the country north of Toronto, painted and drawn since the War. His drawings and paintings of aircraft, personnel and aerodromes, which he did as War Records Artist with the Royal Canadian Air Force during the Second World War, now held by the Canadian War Museum in Ottawa, are an important part of his work, and deserve recognition as such.
