He was also a charter member of Canadas most famous band of painters, the Group of Seven, and in his own right, one of Canadas finest and most inventive artists. He is best known for the landscape paintings, but his work, taken as a whole, is far from typical of the Group of Sevens output, and his tempest-tossed life gives quite a different meaning to the title of his signature painting, Stormy Weather. This is the first authoritative biography of Varley, written in a lively fashion and based on a wealth of original research.
