    schema:reviewBody ""Over the past eighty-five years, unanswered questions around the fate of Tom Thomson continue to fascinate Canadians, so much so that his biography (factual and invented) threatens to overshadow his art. In plays poems, biographies, songs, and artworks, writers and artists have imagined who he was. Inventing Tom Thomson is about these inventions. From Blodwen Davies, Henry Beissel, and Arthur Lismer to Joan Murray, Robert Kroestsch, Joyce Wieland, and The Tragically Hip, writers and artists have been compelled to imagine their own Tom Thomsons." "By stressing the fictionality of these representations and by considering Thomson's self-portraits and the many photographs, museum exhibitions, and tourist memorabilia that have entered the popular culture, Sherrill Grace examines the ambiguities of myth-making and Canadian identity. Despite our cultural obsession with the iconic painter, no one, suggests Grace, can claim to recover the real, original Tom Thomson. In the end, all we have are our inventions."--Jacket." ;
