He worked as a  commercial illustrator between 1922 and 1924.  He first worked as a teacher, then promoted to principal at the Winnipeg School of Art, until 1947.

FitzGerald exhibited in two shows with the Group of Seven in 1930, and joined the Group in 1932 when J.E.H. MacDonald died.

In 1931, he receives recognition for his Doc Snyder’s House.  In 2003, the Royal Canadian Mint produced a gold coin based on this painting.

      It is nice, isn’t it? There are quite a few I like in the series, as as well as some I knew I liked, but I didn’t were from this group. It was an interesting project for me, and I learned a lot! 🙂
