Français : Bâtiment de 1912 du Musée des Beaux...


On September 4, 1972, Art thieves robbed the Montréal Museum of Fine Arts of $3 million of paintings and art objects.  One of their loot included a $1 million Rembrandt!  It’s the largest art theft in Canadian history.

“They were discriminating thieves and had a fairly good idea of what they were looking for,” says museum spokesman Bill Bantey.

To hear a news bit on the story, follow Peter Mansbridge at CBC Digital Archives.  Here is a teaser:

• The three armed thieves used a ladder propped against a back wall of the museum to enter through the skylight which was only partially alarmed due to repairs.

• Some 20 more paintings were left after the thieves accidentally set off a door alarm while leaving the museum.

Fire-Swept, Algoma

Fire-swept, Algoma Franz Johnston (1920) Source: National Gallery of Canada –

Today I will briefly profile the next Canadian Group of Seven painter:  Francis Hans Johnston.

Hank Johnston (as he was known for many years) was born on June 19, 1888 in Toronto, Ontario.

Like many other Group members, he joined Grip Ltd. as a commercial artist.

Johnston exhibited only once with The Group of Seven, in their first show at the Art Gallery of Toronto (now the Art Gallery of Ontario) in May 1920.

The following year, he left Toronto to become Principal at the Winnipeg School of Art.

In 1924, he announced his official resignation from the Group of Seven, asserting that he had no disagreement with the group, only that he wanted to go his own way with regards to exhibitions.

In 1927, Johnston changed his name to the more exotic title of `Franz’ Johnston. He painted over 250 paintings in his entire career.

Johnston passed away on July 19, 1949, in Toronto, Ontario, at age 61.
