Alfred Joseph Casson is always referred to as A.J.Casson. He was a Canadian artist born in Toronto to an English father and Canadian mother. In 1919 Casson was offered a job with a commercial art firm in Toronto. There he was trained by Franklin Carmichael, a member of the famous Canadian Group of Seven artists. Carmichael encouraged Casson to paint in his spare time. Casson, Carmichael and FH Brigden formed the Canadian Society of Painters in Watercolor in 1925. The following year Casson was asked to join the Group of Seven, and following its dissolution, Casson founded the Canadian Group of Painters in 1933.
A.J. Casson’s most famous painting is White Pine 1957.
