Albert H. Robinson (1881-1956)

Albert Robinson sent two canvasses to the first Group of Seven exhibition in 1919, neither of which has been possible to locate. The painting shown here Noontime, Longue Pointe Village had been exhibited the month before. This work is a strong and expressive painting and marked Robinson as one of the boldest innovators working in Montreal at that time.
