Mount Orford, Morning, 1870

Allan Edson
Canadian, 1846 - 1888
oil on canvas

Purchased 1917
National Gallery of Canada (no. 1398)

As a young man Allan Edson studied under Duncanson. Edson's "Mount Orford, Morning" owes much to Duncanson's "Owl's Head Mountain" (1864; in this gallery). In particular, the light and the misty atmosphere, the composition of mountain and lake, and the picturesque motifs of the torn tree trunk and abandoned boat reflect his teacher's example.
