(1938 - 1934)
Thomas Mower Martin was one of a handful of artists responsible for the establishment of the Ontario Society of Artists, along with Marmaduke Matthews, F. F. Gagen and John A. Fraser.  He organised the influential society in 1872, and eight years later became a charter member of the Royal Canadian Academy.  As the first director of the Ontario Government art school in Toronto, he taught artists such as Lucius R. O'Brien, and was also responsible for initiating a life drawing class for professional artists.

One of Mower Martin's greatest triumphs was the illustration of Wilfred Campbell's 1907 book "Canada".  Martin's numerous renderings of Canadian scenery, taken from original watercolours by him, reflect the text of Campbell in a compelling manner.  Martin had previously published two books himself"  "Artist's Letters from the Rockies" in 1889, and "Canada from the Artist's View" 1893-5.

He travelled via the Canadian Pacific Railway through the Rockies in 1887 and subsequent annual trips for another decade to paint the glorious mountain scenery.
