Dark Cedars, a rare Carl Schaefer canvas from this period, represents a culmination of the artistic genres to which he would have been exposed at that time. As Charles Hill wrote, “The strongest Toronto artist to develop the Group tradition into an individual expression was Carl Schaefer.” In the early 1930s Schaefer was living most of the year in Toronto, barely eking out a living doing lettering work for Brigden’s Printing and Eaton’s, assisting J.E.H. Macdonald and teaching painting part-time at Central Technical High School. He was also assisting with design and mural work for several other artists with whom he had studied at the Ontario College of Art. Schaefer worked with Charles Comfort and was the subject of Comfort’s now iconic 1932 painting, Young Canadian. The 1930s were years of financial struggle for all segments of Canadian society, but despite this, Schaefer was still active, producing works such as this fine painting. In 1932, he exhibited at The Art Gallery of Toronto with three other painters including David Milne, and in 1933 became a charter member of the Canadian Group of Painters.
