    Default spirit

    ... ... Several of the artists worked at the same Toronto commercial design firm, and it was here that they met and discovered their common artistic interests. After work, they socialized together at the Arts and Letters Club. They talked about finding a new direction for Canadian art, a distinctly Canadian style of painting. It was a romantic quest - mainly fueled by the restless spirit of Tom Thomson, who led the others to the Canadian wilderness to sketch and paint.

    Hi! I was wondering if you could take a look for me that which definition of "spirit" below is more suitable for this context? Or you can tell me your opinion, I mean, offer a definition which you think that would be more correct for this case? Thank you!

    Definitions for "spirit" in the Oxford dictionary:
    1. the part of a person that includes their mind, feelings and character rather than their body.
    2. courage, determination or energy.
    3. an attitude.
