Johnston's landscapes reflect his knowledge of turn-of-the-20th-century ideals, being more atmospheric and decorative than those of the Group of Seven. Moose Pond, for instance, has a wall of flat, drooping trees in autumnal shades of orange, and Fire Swept Algoma (1920) has a burnt-out stand of trees in the foreground, the rolling hills behind rendered in a soft pastel purple and blue. The difference in ideology and technique may partially explain why Johnston participated only in the Group of Seven's first show (1920). Frank Johnston may also have felt that the adverse publicity generated by the show might affect his sales.
