8 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and French and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Frederick Horsman Varley, one of the greatest Canadian portraitists of the twentieth century, is an intriguing example of an artist who, despite his fame as a portrait painter, remains better known for his landscapes. This is due mainly to his position as one of the founding members of the Group of Seven, who made a deliberate attempt to raise awareness of our national identity by depicting the Canadian landscape." "Although many public collections across the country, including the National Gallery of Canada, the Art Gallery of Ontario, and the Vancouver Art Gallery, display some of Varley's best-known portraits, these works do not easily fit into the conventional mould of the Group of Seven. Nearly four decades after his death, Varley's portraits are still not fully acknowledged. The release of this beautifully illustrated bilingual volume coincides with an unprecedented exhibition of his portraiture, which opens in Markham on May 25, 2007, and will tour to four other venues across Canada."--Jacket

Stormy weather : F.H. Varley, a biography by Maria Tippett( Book )

2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Frederick Horsman Varley was a binge drinker, womanizer, and spendthrift. He was also a charter member of Canada's most famous band of painters, the Group of Seven, and in his own right, one of the country's finest and most inventive artists." "He is best known for the landscape paintings that were his chief contribution to the Group of Seven exhibitions. Of these, Stormy Weather, Georgian Bay, may be the most widely recognized and admired." "He never held down a job for long. Although a fine portrait painter, he could not bring himself to curry favour with the powerful people who might have given him a living as a portraitist." "He was, above all, a committed bohemian who put his art before friends, family, and conventional appearances." "Varley refused to turn out repeated renditions of the kind of landscape paintings that had given rise to his early fame. He needed new inspiration and sought it in new locations, from British Columbia to the Cape Breton highlands. The result is a varied body of work in which the enduring achievements are his early war pictures, his portraits, and landscapes from both the Group of Seven and later Lynn Valley, British Columbia, periods."--Jacket
