Albert Robinson R.C.A. (1881-1956) is one of the foremost artists of the high period of modernist painting in Canada, a period which saw the development of a national school of art inspired by Tom Thomson and the Group of Seven. A friend of A.Y. Jackson's, Robinson was one of three guests who participated in the first Group of Seven Exhibition in 1920 and he also exhibited with the Beaver Hall Group.
