This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Lionel Fitzgerald was best known as the "Painter of the Prairies," even though he painted mostly in his immediate surroundings. A member of the Group of Seven, Fitzgerald was born in Winnipeg in 1890.

He spent his summers on his grandmother's farm in the south of Manitoba where he developed his love of prairies. He left school at fourteen and worked for a wholesale druggist before feeling the urge to draw and become a full-time artist. He studied art in Winnipeg, New York and Pittsburgh and later taught at the Winnipeg School of Art in 1924. The National Gallery purchased a scene of "Late Fall, Manitoba" in 1918, and his work was mostly known from being in shows.

Fitzgerald was invited to join the Group of Seven in the summer of 1932 as the only western Canadian painter of the seven artists that comprised the group. His location and his different approach to landscape painting put Fitzgerald on the periphery of the Group. He never exhibited as a member of the Group of Seven, but in 1934 he became a founding member of the Canadian Group of Painters.
