Seven Dwarfs, Seven Days of the Week, Seven in the Group

And here they are, in a photo taken in 1920, wearing suits and looking fairly staid by today's standards. There isn't even anyone smoking and the only beverage on the table appears to be a cup of coffee. Perhaps the photographer made them look more serious that what they were in their intimate lives.

As seen in Toronto more than ninety years ago, six of the Group of Seven, plus their friend Barker Fairley, in 1920. From left to right: Frederick Varley, A. Y. Jackson, Lawren Harris, Fairley, Frank Johnston, Arthur Lismer, and J. E. H. MacDonald. It was taken at The Arts and Letters Club of Toronto.
