If you have a cottage in northern Ontario, chances are you’ve seen (or hiked across) the landscapes that inspired Canada’s most recognizable artists, the Group of Seven. What you may not realize, though, is that Canada has a rich artistic heritage that extends both before and after the work of the iconic group—and that our country was and is home to artists with national and international significance.

To take us through the work of ten of Canada’s top artists, we’ve engaged the help of Erik Peters, a veteran art dealer and appraiser who’s appeared on both the Canadian and British versions of Antiques Roadshow, to walk us through a gallery of works that span more than two centuries.
