L.L.Fitzgerald was born and bred in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada(1890), where he died in 1956. This site offers his drawings and etchings as well as some paintings.
I am surprised at the differences of style; he navigates between light, delicate, somewhat stylised landscapes and vivid colourful images.
The last ones might explain why he was invited to The Group of Seven in 1928.

In later life, he turned to abstraction.
