Frank Johnston was the only member of the Group who did not retain his membership throughout the years the Group existed…
A man of staggering energy and enthusiasm, he also had an amazing rate of production. In the 1919 Algoma show, he contributed sixty works – more than any other artist. A few months later, he extended his independence even more, having a large one-man show of 200 paintings at the T. Eaton Company Galleries.
