Pine Island

In 1920, in and around Algonquin Provincial Park in Ontario, Canada, a group of Canadian artists became known to each other and called themselves the Group of Seven, though at times they were also known as the Algonquin School. Their search was for an artistic style which was quintessentially Canadian and they believed that a distinct style could be developed through direct contact with nature. By the end of the decade, the artists had come to be recognised as the pioneers of a new Canadian national art movement.

Moorcroft designer, Emma Bossons, will admit to more than a passing admiration for the Group of Seven and Pine Island is proof of that. It is as if the landscape is dancing with the gracious waves and swirls of its trees, and clouds drifting above. The design has a great sense of movement and motion within its clever linework and it takes you to the edge of the viewpoint to wonder at the majesty of the Canadian landscape before you, just as the Group of Seven did a 100 years ago.
