Art Brokerage: L.L. FitzGerald Canadian-American Artist: b. 1890-1956. Lionel LeMoine FitzGerald (1890 – 1956) was a Canadian artist and art educator. He was the only member of the Group of Seven to be based in western Canada. His landscapes and still lifes were drawn from his immediate surroundings—the view of the back lane outside his house; a potted plant on the windowsill. His style grew more spare and abstract over his career. His body of work includes painting in oil and watercolour, drawing, printmaking and sculpture. After their marriage, FitzGerald determined to work as an artist while taking on a variety of jobs to support himself and his family. He arranged window displays, did free-lance interior decorating and painted theatre backdrops. His artistic work met with some success. In 1913, he exhibited at the Royal Canadian Academy (Montreal). In 1918, his painting, Late Fall, Manitoba was purchased by the National Gallery of Canada and in 1921 he received his first solo exhibition, at the Winnipeg Art Gallery. He spent the winter of 1921-1922 at the Art Students League of New York in New York City. 1930 Exhibited work in two shows with the Group of Seven 1932 invited to join the Group of Seven, after the death of J.
