A painting entitled “A Yard Scene from the Porch, A Chair in the Foreground,” by Group of Seven artist A.J. Casson. The painting was created in 1953 as part of a program by the Ontario Artists’ Society called “The Painter’s Art in Layman’s Language.” Eighteen artists were asked to paint their interpretation of a chair. Casson was the only one to recognize the chair as Mennonite furniture, and painted it in its proper context.
