Frederick Horsman Varley 1881 – 1969). English-born Canadian painter. He immigrated to Canada in 1912 and in 1920, he was a founding member of the Group of Seven. The other founding members were J. E. H. MacDonald, A. Y. Jackson, Lawren Harris, Frank Johnston, Arthur Lismer, and Franklin Carmichael. He was the only original member of the Group of Seven to specialize in portraiture.

- "Varley had a mop of red hair... and the colour was the symbol of his fiery nature.https://books.google.it/books…

- "His thick mane is mostly the color of ashes now but at the roots there are flickers of the tiery red hair that blazed in his youth.https://archive.macleans.ca/article/1959/11/7/varley

- "He was also an irresponsible alcoholic who loved women, and with his handsome face, clear blue eyes and shock of copper-red hair—women loved him back."  http://evelazarus.com/frederick-horsman-varleys-lynn-valle…/

- "Bold is also the style Varley employed in his Self Portrait (1919) - ginger hair tousled, face shining with sweat, blue gaze intense."  https://www.theglobeandmail.com/…/the-many-f…/article691653/
