Alexander M. Fleming (1875 - 1929) was the most significant artist to emerge from the Chatham area. He began creating in the years before the rise of the Group of Seven and was influenced early in his career by the Barbizon school, later the scientific colour theories of the French Impressionists, and towards the end of his career, by the Group of Seven. He was elected a member of the Ontario Society of Artists and had work accepted into prestigious Royal Canadian Academy exhibitions.
