    all its own

    The Group of Seven were the most influential painters in the country, and several of their paintings have become icons of Canada. A.Y.Jackson was influential for his ananlysis of light and shadow. Arthur Lismer's work has an intensity all its own - particularly his painting of the "Canadian Jungle," the violently colored forest in the fall.

    (Hi! What does "all its own" mean in this context? I can not get this sentence in red color. Could you make it clearer? Thanks a lot! )


    Lawren Harris went further than the rest in simplifying the forms of nature into sculptural shapes, organizing an entire scene into a single, unified image, and eventually into abstraction.

    intensity: referring to some aspect/s of the paintings that are very forceful. (With Lismer, it's his use of raw colour (rather than 'pretty' colours), coarse brush strokes, and simplified forms and shapes.)
    (See Paintings by Arthur Lismer

    There is a kind of intensity in his paintings that is unique, making a painting immediately recognizable as being by Lismer: they have an intensity all their own.
